I have finally managed to do tutorial for the “Rock ‘n’ Roll” method I used on the butterfly below.

Using 2 ink colours, this technique adds extra dimension to your solid stamped images
 Instructions for Rock ‘n’ Roll

Supplies Required –

? Cardstock – Very Vanilla, Punpkin Pie
? DSP – Non-SU
? Ink – Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip
? Stamp Set – Great Friend
? Punches – 1 3/8” Circle, 1 ¼” Circle
? Accessories – Dazzling Diamonds, 2-Way Glue, Rhinestones – Non-SU, Acetate, Dimensionals

Instructions –
1. Using the Bashful Blue ink pad (lighter colour), ink your image
2. Using your same image, ink the edges with the Chocolate Chip (darker colour) by rolling the edges of the stamp onto the ink pad
3. If done properly, the darker coloured ink should appear around the outer edges of the stamp, while the lighter colour ink will still be showing on the inside
4. Stamp your image onto your cardstock
5. If required, repeat above steps
6. Using scissors, cut around stamped image
7. Complete your project

1. Prior to stamping the image onto my card, I will sometimes blow onto the stamp so as to moisten the ink a little. This ensures that this ink is still moist
2. Practice on a scrap piece of cardstock or paper until such time as you are happy with your result

Until next time when I will post instructions for the Note Book!
