Directions

2022 - August - Martha Lucia Gomez - Step 1a

Step 1:

Take a piece of a dark color cardstock to create the background. On my sample, I am using dark grey, but this type of stamping looks great in additional colors like red, blue or black. Select the stamp set that you prefer to create the background.

 I selected an alphabet set of stamps but I stamped the entire sheet at once. To make it, just secure the entire sheet over the stamping tool. To create the soft look, I used VersaColor  White. It is a soft ink ideal to emboss or create shadows.  

If you are not heat embossing it, let the piece a side for a while to ink dry naturally or use a heat tool to speed the process.

Step 2:

In a separate piece of white smooth cardstock, stamp the spiral image using VersaFine Onix. Let the ink dry naturally and you will obtain a crisply image. Or if you prefer, you can heat emboss the stamped image to add a shiny look.

Step 4:

Color all the details with Memento Dual Tip Markers.  

TIP: Keep in mind that you can use your Memento Dual Tip Markers with both inks, VersaFine and Memento without any coloring problem.
