The stamp set is from the Cherry-O Workshop on the Go. You can purchase the WOTG on my website. I used three techniques on the cherries: masking, second-generation stamping, and stamp rolling.
- Masking - To make some of the cherries appear to be in front of others, I stamped one cherry on a Post-It note (close to the top of the note), then cut it out. I stamped a cherry on my paper, then placed the Post-It note mask over the stamped image before stamping another overlapping cherry. When I pulled up the mask, it looked like the first cherry was in front of the other one.
- Second-generation stamping - No, this isn't stamping with your mama (although that can be fun, too!). To get a lighter image, stamp once onto scrap paper before stamping onto your paper without reinking.
- Stamp rolling (or rock & roll) - I loaded the cherry stamp with ink, then stamped off onto scrap paper (second generation). Before putting it on the paper, though, I just rolled the edges of the stamp on the Tulip ink then stamped onto my cardstock. It makes the image lighter in the middle. You can also do this with different colored inks (think fall leaves!). The key here is to start with the lightest color first and always clean the stamp before inking up again.
