How to Extend A Stamp to Second and Third Generation Stamping

When you have an ink that holds its image strength as well as VersaFine Clair does, creating a card with multiple shades and tones is incredibly easy. By using third generation stamping for the background, the full-strength VersaFine Clair stands out beautifully while, of course, blending seamlessly. I used the same technique with the hearts of first and second generation stamping to let the primary image shine through while letting the smaller hearts be accents. I’ve found that I can get a full five generations of images from a single inking of VersaFine Clair so there’s plenty of tones to choose from.
