Before I delve into the insane Paper Pumpkin news to share with you I need to keep my promise from yesterday. (scroll down to see yesterday’s post if you missed it) While there are numerous colour combinations that can be used to 3 step stamp the sweet bear in the Baby Bear stamp set, this colour combination works really well.
You can see how each step looks different and how the completed image pulls all the finer details together. You stamp the most full image (but not much detail) using your lightest ink colour. Next you stamp the second most full image (with a bit more detail) over top using a darker ink contrasting ink colour. For the bear image, I line up the blank spaces between the arms and body first over the previous stamped image, then rotate the stamp as needed to line up the head/ feet. Finally, you complete the process by stamping your third, most detailed image using your darkest contrasting ink colour.
Stamped separately these images don’t provide much impact, yet you can see once the 3 steps are completed, the bear looks so real!
