Rubber Stamping Techniques by Ann Craig and Stampin' Up!

How many Stamping Techniques do you know?

Most of us know how to ink up and print onto the card to obtain an image, but did you know that even the act of inking can be improved with a couple of hints? You may be having difficulty with obtaining an even coverage of ink on a solid stamp image -I can help you find out how to overcome this, plus show you other creative ways of inking up stamps.

It is amazing just how many different methods, and combinations of such, that can be used in rubber stamping. Once you have learned a few basics, your imagination is your only limitation, - and don't think you can only work on card stock or paper.
