Tutorial ~ Stamping - Two Stepping

This tutorial is for a technique called Two Stepping. For this technique you will need a specific stamp set, this would be a stamp that has the outline and a solid (2 pieces) that make up the final complete image. The first is the Solid stamp. It would be a solid stamp that would be the inside fill in to the outline. The second stamp would be the actual outline stamp.

Here is an example:

This first orange sq. is the outline stamp

This second orange sq. is the solid stamp

Supplies Needed:

  1. A Two Step Stamp
  2. Ink Pad
  3. Paper
  4. Scrap Paper

Step One
Load your "SOLID" stamp with ink and stamp it onto your scrap paper.

Step Two
You will only be stamping the second generation (2nd layer of ink on the stamp) onto your working cardstock. This gives you a lighter solid image

Step Three
Load your "OUTLINE" stamp with the same colored ink. Looking through the acrylix block and stamp line up your Outline image with the solid image and stamp.

Now you can embellish the image in any way you see fit. On this card I used liquid glass to fill in a few of the center leaves to look like the yellow centers on poinsettia's.
