General Techniques

by April Williams, a "Technique Tuesday" technique which may be seen on the SNS blog here, or on April's blog here.

Thumping Colors


  1. Bold or close detailed stamps.
  2. Several colors of  non permanent markers with a brush end --I used orange and light brown on the lion's mane and olive green, dark green and orange on the fern.

Start with your lightest marker and pounce the brush side of your marker all over the stamp using a loose wrist motion while at the same time rotating the stamp. Then go to your next darker color and pounce all over again. Keep doing this with each color of marker going to the darkest color. Then give your stamp a few huffs of breath and stamp immediately. The result is a variegated look.

Easy peasy and fun!  Enjoy!
