- Dylusions Paints work perfectly for this technique! It's fluid consistency makes it easy to apply and it dries quickly, which is especially nice for smaller projects like cardmaking.
- Makeup sponges or ink blending tools are two easy ways to apply the paint.
- Use a heavy weight smooth cardstock for best results. I used 110 lb., white cardstock.
- Stack and adhere two of the Recollections chipboard pieces together to make it easier to grip.
- Use a stamp block or baron to help you apply even pressure for crisp images.
- When your project is complete, stamp off on scratch paper to remove any left over paint. Once your chipboard stamp is dry, the paint will not transfer. Store it for use for future stamping, or use it as an embellishment on your project.
I stamped my chipboard stamp using the shade Fresh Lime and set it aside while I looked through my rubber stamp stash for an image to pair with it. I decided to stamp the fern leaf image from a Red Rubber Designs set called Pressed Flowers. I used the shade Calypso Teal, I LOVE how it turned out! BTW Pressed Flowers is on sale right now for only $0.99! but there was only one in stock when I checked while writing this post.
