Bokeh Dots with the "Stamparatus Multicolour stamping technique"

Hello and welcome back. Yesterday I posted about the bokeh dots montone colour card which I love, but today I have a few Multicoloured versions.

You need the Stamparatus for this technique, and it's oh so easy.
  • position your stamp on the stamparatus plate and ink up with a base colour,  for these cards I started with So Saffron
  • stamp the image, making sure your magnets are going to keep your card from moving as you will be stamping repeatedly in the same position.
  • no need to clean off the saffron ink
  • using a sponge dauber apply a second colour of ink to one end of the stamp, I used fresh fig for the first version of this
  • stamp and review your panel, you may want to add more colour to increase the depth so the colour transitions are graduated. 
  • you can continue adding as much colour as you like until you are happy with the depth
  • using a third colour (Old Olive) and the same technique apply ink with a clean sponge dauber to the opposite end.

I then stamped the Dandelions over the top with Blackberry Bliss and splattered them with some Gold Wink of Stella and layered them up in some Easel Cards. I kept the sentiments quite minimal.

Your colour combinations are endless, I also used
  • So Saffron, Night of Navy, Blackberry Bliss and Bermuda Bay - which over the saffron turned a gorgeous rich green 
  • So Saffron, Fresh Fig, Blackberry Bliss, Grapefruit Grove

I do hope you'll give this technique a try, it's so much fun.

I  hope you have a creative week and remember,
"don't just post online,
 post something pretty!"

cheers, Liz
