MIM #116: Adding texture to stamps
I did just the same but as I don`t have any reinkers, I simply put some ink on my craft sheet by rubbing my hibiscus burst inkpad over it. Spritzed some water next to the ink and used a watercolor brush to make the flowers background.
The swirly part was stamped with scarlet jewel ink.
The bottom part was created with the `in the meadow die´ out of sweet blush cardstock and stamped with background basics: houndstooth stamp with ripe avocado ink.
NOW: the `giving texture to the stamp part´ can be found on the small leaves. They are from the same set as the flowers and don`t have any texture on them. I thought it` d be fun if they had the same swirly thing going on as the flowers so I made a little swirl with my stylos pen. You could use a stylos pen to draw ANYTHING on your stamp you like, works really well! :-)
That`s it for today :-) Good night....
