Cool Rubber Stamping Technique Everyone Will Love
See how much fun it is to play and add colour to your rubber stamped images! Here’s the How-To so you can see how easy it is!
- Ink up your stamp with your ink then lay the stamp upside down on the table.
- Dab your sponge dauber into another darker, but complementary colour of ink then dab lightly right onto the stamp.
- Stamp onto your paper.
- Clean your stamp well before inking again.
Easy Tips for Cool Colouring on Stamps
- Use solid stamps. These critters work wonderfully well for this technique. They’re solid image stamps meaning the colour of ink you use is the colour you’ll see on the paper. There’s no need to colour these in with markers or pencil crayons after you stamp.
- Start with a lighter colour of ink. To get the best result with this technique, you’ll want to start with a lighter colour. For today’s card I used Petal Pink. To show a little variety, the images in the How-To section have Pale Papaya (also to use in an upcoming post!)
- Select only portions of the stamp to dab on your dauber. You’ll end up with the best results when you only add your contrasting colour to a small portion of you rubber stamp. This gives you the pop of colour you see in this fun card.
You can see how the letters and dots are holding the easel in position. You always need to have something that will stop the front from sliding forward and just closing.
But a closed easel card is pretty cool too! This is exactly how it would come out of the envelope in your friend’s hand!
