One of my favorite way to spruce up my solid stamping is with the two toned stamping technique. It is so easy to do, but add a lot of interest and depth to your project. Today, I’m stepping it up another notch by mixing in a pearlescent ink, which has such a great sheen and adds even more interest to this simple card! Be sure to watch the video tutorial below for all the details!
I used the “Lips” solid stamp to create my background. Because it is a red rubber stamp, I used my MISTI for the stamping, but this technique can easily be done with clear acrylic stamps without a stamp positioner. With each stamped image I first stamped the lips fully with Brilliance Pearlescent Coral ink. Then, after cleaning off the stamp, I used Love Letter dye ink to just ink up the edges of the lips and stamped it down for a nice two toned image. It almost looks as if the lips are wearing lip liner!!
On a side note, I want to give you a close up of the Brilliance ink pad I used today. It is so unique and has a shine built right in! Not to mention it stamps beautifully and the shine transfers so well to paper!!
I wanted the background to be the star on this card, so I kept everything else very simple. I matted a sentiment and the background with red card stock and attached them both to an A2 side folding card base.
To add a bit more interest and sparkle to the background, I grabbed my Sparkle IrResistible Pico Embellisher and added a few sparkly clear drops all over the background!!
This two toned stamping stamping technique is one I have used before. If you want more inspiration with this technique, head HERE!
