Mirror Image Stamping
I've been cleaning out my craft studio in anticipations of having to move EVERYTHING out. Yep...changing out the carpet for hardwood. Kinda scared about that considering I drop an ink pad weekly.
So when cleaning out some drawers I came across this mirror image stamp by Rubber Stampede.
Now I've tried this stamp pad before without much success. I think I used the wrong ink and I reinked the stamp after stamping the pad. So I practiced and practiced to see what worked. I found that Club Scrap hybrid ink works best without reinking the stamp. Here's what I did to achieve the heart image with the swirl stamps from Club Scrap.
- Apply ink to stamp.
- Stamp on mirror image stamp pad.
- Stamp mirror image onto paper.
- Stamp original stamp without reinking next to 1st stamped image.
ONCE did I actually stamp it correctly.
So what did I do with all those heart images? Here's a sample for a Valentine's day card that I made many duplicates of for the Can You Case It challenge.
