Stamping Off

Hello and welcome. Today I am using a technique that has a few names. I call it stamping off, I have heard others call it generational stamping. But it doesn't really matter what you call it, it is an easy technique that gives a great effect. Here is the project I made using it.

Rooted In Nature

The technique is really easy and you need no special tools to do it. You just need a stamp, ink pad and some scrap paper. Simply ink up your stamp as per normal, and either stamp onto your project or some scrap paper. Then stamp again without reinking the stamp. Your second stamping will be paler than the full ink stamping. If you stamp again without reinking, your image will be lighter again.

That is what I did on my card. I stamped the middle tree in full strength. The two either side were stamped off once, and the trees on the outside were stamped off twice. So my trees fade off into the distance. I love this technique and the effect it gives.

I made this card for the Simply Inked Team Highlights. Beryl played along this week and made this card. She stamped off all her images before stamping onto her project so all her images are paler than normal.
