Two-tone inking with a bold stamp

Two-tone inking with a bold stamp

Two-tone inking with a bold stamp is a great way to add variation to a stamp layer and adds a little more to your card design! Today this CAS mini slimline card came together so quickly and yet the two-tone inking with a bold stamp really makes this card. Pair it with a gorgeous fall colour scheme, and this card just exudes warmth. Am I Right? This card features the new Painted Leaves stamp set and it is such a lovely organic and abstract leaf stamp set with so many ways it could be used. Keep an eye out for a fun video tutorial with this stamp set!

The new release is available from 10.08.2021

Creating the two-tone inking

Start off by inking up one of the leaves from the Painted Leaves stamp set with Mandarin Spice ink and stamp onto a piece of white card. Next, ink up half of the same leaf with Merlot ink.

Before you stamp the second ink colour over the top of the first colour, use either a wet wipe to soften the edges of the ink on the stamp or use a blending brush to smooth the edges. After, stamp this down for a blended fade to the two-tone inking. 

Assembling the card

Before using the coordinating die to die-cut the leaf out, stamp and emboss in Metallic Gold Rich embossing powder the pattern layer to the leaf.  Stamp ‘Hello Autumn’ from the Give Thanks Sentiments stamp set in Eucalyptus ink onto a white mini-slimline cardbase. 

Smoosh the same coloured ink pads down onto an acrylic block and spritz with water.  Next, pick up the colours with a paintbrush and splatter cardbase. Lastly, foam mount the die-cut leaf onto the front to finish the card.
