Hi card making friends, it’s time for another round of Stamping Techniques 101 so today I’m sharing a New Video – Falling Flowers and the Thumping Technique.
Sandi’s Tips & Tricks:
- The Thumping Technique is very cool and very easy and provides one of a kind results.
- You start with your stamp face up – and inking the entire stamp with a light colour.
- Holding your marker loosely, start to thump (or drum), all over the stamp – Pretend you’re in a rock n roll band, haha
- Move the stamp around so you get the thumping from all directions
- Pick a couple of complimentary colours of markers and start with the lightest working your way to the darkest so you don’t contaminate the marker.
- When you’re done, Huff on the stamp with your breath to moisten all the ink again, and stamp your image.
For my first card, I did the thumping technique on the flourish background only:
Couple of Sneak Peeks in this picture for you too:
- The flower – watercoloured with the New Berry Bliss Incolour
- The base stamping on the flourish is the NEW Lemon Lime Twist In Colour
- The Old Olive ribbon across the card is the New Mini Chevron Ribbon (so soft and subtle – you are going to LOVE it).
- AND – DRUM ROLL PLEASE (seeing as we are drumming) – WELCOME BACK GLOSSY WHITE CARDSTOCK – I am over the moon over this as it’s so fun to do ink techniques with the Glossy White Cardstock….
For the Second New Video – Falling Flowers and the Thumping Technique Card:
I also did the thumping on the flower. I first inked it in the New Powder Pink, and then thumped with Berry Bliss and Fresh Fig. I stamped it on a piece of Pink Pirouette.
The sentiment is from the All Things Thanks stamp Set.
