Technique: Shadow stamping with Just Believe

Wednesday, 12 January 2011

Here's an amazing effect I have been experimenting with recently - shadow stamping.
The Just Believe set, which all demos got FREE at the Stampin' Up! European Convention last year, is ideal for this. I have also used the wonderful Watercolour Paper for a soft effect.
First, stamp the image on to the paper in Crumb Cake and give a light mist with water. Leave to dry and while doing this stamp the image again on to the acetate sheet with the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig. Then, place the sheet over the image but not right on top of it. Line up the handle, take away the acetate and stamp the image (now coloured in with the Stampin' Write Markers) slightly out of line. Spritz again with water for an extra soft look.
This creates a wonderful subtle shadow and really makes the image stand out.
Here it is in another colour scheme.

That's it!
I'm off to bed now as I've not been sleeping too great with worrying about things, so trying to get early nights!

So pretty - and this technique makes the image really pop.
