Debbie Henderson showed this technique on her blog... so wanted to share it with you... explains perfectly how to give action to a stamp design! You can use this with any type of stamp that would show slow motion.. such as an animal, vehicle, toys, etc.
Here she uses the "D is for Dog Stamp Set"
- Ink Pad
- Stamp of choice
Step 1: Ink your stamp and stamp to the right of your cardstock piece. In this sample, I created a square that measures 3 1/2" x 3 1/2". I turned my cardstock piece so that it sits diagonally and used Soft Suede Ink to ink up my dog image.
Step 2: Without re-inking your stamp, move over about 1/2" to the left of the stamped image and stamp again. By not re-inking you are stamping a less ink-intensive image.
Step 3: Repeat Step 2 to create a 3rd stamped image, this one even lighter than the other two. That's all there is to "Motion"! Quite simple huh?
Here are the remainder of the supplies used:
Supplies for card:
- Cardstock: Poppy Parade, Whisper White, Crumb Cake Soft Suede
- Inks: Soft Suede, Craft White
- Stamps: D for Dog, Teeny Tiny Wishes
- Tools: Edgelits *NEW*, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch
- Accessories: Rhinestone Jewels, 1/2" Stitched Poly Poppy Parade Ribbon
Doesn't it look like this dog is actually moving on the cardstock layer?
I can almost see a happy dog wagging his tail as he strolls on by!
