Today's post is about stretching a small outline stamp set. This stamp set called Flowing Lines is part of the promotion from Altenew. Please see the end of the post for details.
First, let's talk about using the stamp for the background. I built up the colors by using the BACKSIDE of the stamp and inked up the card stock.
Some of the area may not stamp that well because it is not designed to stamp this way. However, if you keep inking it up with ink-blending tools or stamp repeatedly with your Stamp-Positioner (such as MISTI)., it totally works!
I then inked up each area with a stronger shade of ink to make the print stand out. Tone-on-tone stamping is always a good thing and so easy to do.
The sentiment is from Paint-a-flower Fashion Monger Dahlia. Love that set!
Good news! This stamp is free for two days with every Altenew order!
