Today, Tami Sanders is sharing a way to get more dimension when stamping on your cards:
Hi! Hostess Tami here with a Thank You card to share; one featuring flowers in shadow. You can create dimension in your stamping projects just by layering your inks…
The first layer of the card was a light spritz of Grape ColorBox® Premium Dye Ink Spray! by Stephanie Barnard on white cardstock. Then, once dry, a large flower was inked using the matching Grape ColorBox® Premium Dye Ink by Stephanie Barnard and stamped all over the cardstock to make the next layer.
Next, comes the “shadow”. The feature floral design was stamped using Dragonfly Black ColorBox® Classic Pigment Ink and embossed using ColorBox® Clear Embossing Powder. The black ink really stands out against the background, and the shine from the embossing powder contrasts with the matte background design.
The final layer was the sentiment, stamped using the Dragonfly Black Pigment Ink and embossed using the Clear Embossing Powder on a scrap of the spritzed cardstock. The stamped sentiment was cut out, inked around the edges with the Dragonfly Black Pigment Ink and adhered using 3D Squares.
To add a little more dimension, the card front was matted on black cardstock before being adhered to a white cardstock card. I hope you enjoyed these tips on how ot get more dimension when stamping your cards!
