Two Toned Stamping with Imagine

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!!
