I LOVE to find techniques that I have used in my stamping and adapt them to work with my stencils. Shadow stamping is a technique that I knew I could easily switch up a bit and make it work beautifully! Be sure to watch the video below for all the details!
This technique is really easy to do and completely customizable! I used it with the new stencil “Wisteria” from The Crafter’s Workshop, but you could easily adapt it to any stencil you have on hand and make it work with your style of card making!
A little important tip, you will want to use a pigment ink for the inking up the first time. If you don’t have a pigment ink, you could use dye inks and then cover it with Versamark ink. You need an ink that you can heat emboss to create a resist effect.
Also, for the shadow I like to use a dye ink. I find that dye inks settle into the paper and create a softer appearance, which is the perfect look for the shadow! Be sure to watch the video above for all the tips and tricks I share to make this technique even easier!
I hope you all enjoyed today’s super simple technique and video tutorial! If you are interested in any of the supplies I used, you can find them all listed and linked down below. Until next time, Happy Crafting!!
