Some of the things you can do with stamps and or ink

We have been thinking about the things you can do with stamps and Ink.   Here is the list we came up with.

1.   Simple stamping

2.   Kiss Stamping, 1st impression onto a flat rubber plate and then from that onto the project gives a reverse image.

3. Stamping with Water Soluble Inks
      brush out the image with a water brush to blur the edges and/or fill the image
      Spritz the inked stamp with water before stamping
      Stamp onto damp paper/card

4.   Heat embossing aka wet embossing

5.   Use a glue pad instead of an ink pad and sprinkle Glitter or Flock onto the image.

6.   Use stamps to make impressions into embossing paste or triple embossing (layers of hot ep)

7.   Use a rubber stamp or good quality polymer (Such as Clarity) as a plate and iron fantasy fibres and/or fantasy film over the design.

8.  Unmounted stamping
       Great on curved surfaces
       Allows use of just part of the image

9.   Stamping layers often used for foliage effects

10. Use one inking for multiple impressions

11. Stamping and masking

12. Repeated stamping to make borders or background patterns

13. Use Solvent inks and stamp on glass, ceramics or other non porous/glossy surfaces

14. Faux Batik technique

15. Stamping with bleach

16. Stamping with Gesso or into wet gesso

17. Stamping onto Almost Leather or Fun Foam to create embossed leather effect

18. Potato stamping.

19. Make your own 3d decoupage or 3d topper with Mandala stamp
