My stamp group is having a week of challenges and today I am sharing the challenge I came up with for everyone to try. I found this technique on Pinterest and had never heard of it. You ink your background, add some tacky glue in spots across the card, leaving it thicker in spots. Let it dry, then ink over top in another color. I inked my background to look like a sunset on the water and after the glue dried went over it with a dark blue to make it darker. I stamped the images and then realized they looked way to bright for such a dark evening scene so I after coloring them I inked over with old paper ink to give them a darker feel.
You can see the link HERE to the written tutorial of this technique.
