TIPS for an exquisite sunrise or sunset on hand stamped cards:
*Use Shimmery White Card Stock #101910 and Sponge Daubers #133773
*Add saturated color to the card stock by collecting water based ink from an ink pad and SCRUBBING the ink all the way across the card with a dauber.
*For blended colors for the sky, OVERLAP the colors.
*Stamp silhouetted images on the finished base with BLACK ink
*Color in any open areas that should be silhouetted using a water based BLACK marker
*Layer onto a BLACK card base to pop colors
*PRACTICE & EXPERIMENT
Use plenty of ink, loading your dauber multiple times!
Any highlights, like on this gazebo roof, can be filled in with a black marker to create a true silhouette.
