Kitty Frampton shared this fabulous ink layering technique with us in the April issue of Craft Stamper Magazine. Using gorgeous Hunkydory flower stamps, Kitty used tone on tone ink shades to create a layered, almost 3D look to her cards!
This process is created by stamping up layers of a stamp using different tones of ink to create a 3D effect without having to colour it. It is best to give yourself plenty of work space to do this technique so you can stamp out lots of designs at the same time. I use several ink blocks so each stamp has it's own, this speeds up the process and means you don't end up with inky hands. Here, I have used dye inks which dry almost instantly so you don't have to wait in between stamping each layer.

Craft Stamper Printables!
We are thrilled to be launching our brand new printables series this month. Each month, Craft Stamper will be sharing one (or sometimes 2!) totally free sheets of elements, all ready for you to print off and use in your art.
We’ll have a mixture of images, backgrounds, sentiments and templates for you to play with, all created by the Craft Stamper team. Have a great idea for a printable element? Let us know and we’ll see what we can do!
This month, we have ready to print versions of our exclusive autumnal images, a selection of sentiments and a really useful ATCoin back for you to use. We also have some stunning textural pics, images photographed by our own Jaine! We have small sizes that fit perfectly onto an ATCoin, and as our bonus sheet this month, the pics have been scaled up for larger projects!
We can’t wait to see what you all create using our printables, so feel free to share on our facebook page, or email our team a picture at: editor.cs@mytimemedia/com. We’d love to take a peek!
