STAMPlorations Inspiration #74

It's Tuesday and it's time for another Inspiration post over at STAMPlorations!  As usual, we've got an awesome variety of projects to share.  This is mine....

I decided to try the stamping over white pigment ink technique on black cardstock this time.  So, I took my oak leaf stamp (Trendy Leaves set) stamped it first with white pigment ink then went over it with a variety of Distress ink colours.  The colours aren't as vibrant over the white as the StazOn ink is but still very nice. I stamped my sentiment (Smile set) in versamark ink and embossed it in white.  I've done this technique on kraft and now black cardstock but I think I want to test it out on other colours too.  :-)

Well, make sure to pop on by the main blog and see all the other lovely cards by the DT.  And remember, if you leave a comment there you are entered in for the prize draw!

Have a great day and thanks for visiting!


  1. The colour of those leaves are subtle and work really well, good to try different mediums and different effects....subtle and not so vibrant works so well on this card x

  2. That is a beautiful creation...

  3. Pretty - overstamping white pigment ink!

  4. I really like this-perfect for a man as well! I am not quite understanding how you created the leaves. You stamped it in white ink and then, once dry you took a brush and, using the distress inks, painted the leaves??

    1. Hi Birgit. No I don't paint over the white stamped leaves. I use the same stamp and stamp over top the white image with the coloured ink. Make it slightly offset and the white looks like a highlight. Hope this helps. :-)

  5. Awesome color on the dark base


Thanks for leaving me your comments. I really appreciate them!
