"Farewell 2010 and Color Me Monday, and hello 2011 and “52 Weeks of Wonder”! In this new year, I’ll be showcasing one fun and fabulous stamping technique every single week. Some will be simple, others will be more advanced, but I promise each one will be beautiful and inspire YOU to make your life more wonder-full.
Today starts off with some great artwork featuring “generational stamping with a twist.” For those of you new to stamping, here’s the gist on generational stamping—a first generation image is made from a freshly-inked stamp pressed to paper. Second generation is when you stamp a second time without re-inking the image, for a lighter impression. Third is even lighter, and so on, until your inked image becomes very faint. Generational stamping is a great way to vary hue and intensity in your images without investing in dozens of ink colors (although who can resist owning more inks?)"
