Stamp Etching

Today I am sharing a "technique" with you that I've learned about at convention last year ... in July! I KNOW... almost a year ago. I just don't know where the time goes! Lydia Fiedler an awesome artist and Stampin' Up! demo, presented this on stage and I knew I had to try it.

Here is my first try at it:

I totally love the look of the image, and think I didn't do too bad for my first try!

This is what the image looks like, plain...

Here is a close up:

It's really simple... basically, you stamp your line image in black ink on either white or colored cardstock and then use a marker and add little line in a flicking motion. You do that to the top and bottom of each petal, and leave the middle section un-touched. The portions of the petals in the stamped image that look sort of folded over are colored in solid in black. BTW, the Project Life Markers are GREAT for this!!!

Give it a try, it's way easier than you might think it is!

BTW - I used our THICK whisper white CS as a layer of the card and textured it on the regular level... and the fibers did not crack! Another PLUS for our new CS! LOVE it!
