This card uses one of my favorite techniques: smooshing a few ink pads on my craft sheet, spritzing with water, and then laying my stamps on the ink. Just before stamping, I tapped the Black Soot pad very lightly around a few of the edges for greater contrast. These lovely feather stamps are clear, so I just fit all of them onto my acrylic block and stamped in one pass . . .
The first impression was lighter than I wanted, so I simply re-dipped the stamps and stamped again . . . not having to fly blind is one of the huge advantages of clear stamps!
