Layered Stamping Technique

Hello friends, thanks so much  for stopping by!  Today I have a card that is all about technique - I have been watching a few tutorials by Jennifer McGuire and this is the result of her Custom Stamp Layering Tutorial

I have stamped the floral outline  from the Penny Black Inc. Petal Power transparent stamp set using Imagine Memento Ink in Rhubarb Stalk ink.  The solid image has been added to the stamp using Imagine Memento Luxe in Rose Bud; the 'details' added by 'removing' some of the ink using a Teflon Bone Folder before stamping onto the card stock.

The leaves have been stamped between the flowers using Imagine Memento Ink in Pistachio, inked up, the same image has been inked up using a darker ink - Bamboo leaves -  straight on the top of the lighter leaves - you can see the lighter green showing through, I have offset some of the darker leave to give a shadow effect. The images look layered but as we know, it is a single stamp.  

Next I have cut/embossed the stamped layer using the largest die from the Nestabilities Scored and Pierced Rectangles Etched Dies using the Platinum Die Cutting  and Embossing Machine   This has been popped up onto a slightly larger pre-cut pink card base using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  A computer generated sentiment has been glued to the top left hand corner of the card front and Want2Scrap Baby Bling Rhinestones have been randomly added to the card front.

Jennifer McGuire has a great tutorial on this technique and you can click on it HERE
