Hi all.  Today I am showing you a three layered stamping tutorial.  The end result of the card is here;


Step 1;  White embossing a panel of water colored paper using the script image from Background Basics 3. (layer 1)

Step 1

Step 2; Using Distress Inks, smear them around your worksheet and spritz heavily with water.

Step 2

Step 3; Drag your water color panel through the ink. (layer 2)

Step 3

Step 4; Again, using Distress Inks, smear on worksheet and spritz heavily with water.  Drag your stamp image (I used the Astor from Flower of the Month; Aster set) through the ink, making sure the entire image gets covered.

Step 4

Step 5; Stamp inked image onto water color paper panel (layer 3)

Step 5

To finish the card, I black embossed a sympathy sentiment from Everyday Greetings, cut out a circle, [and added dimension dots for added depth), and adhered all to my card base. I added a tailored bow to finish it off.


3 Layered Stamping is fun to do, the potential of use is endless.  I hope you give it a try and see what you can create!

See you next time!
