Layered Stamping

Layered stamped cards are easy and beautiful when you have the right stamps, inks and stamping equipment.  There are several companies producing beautiful stamp sets designed for layered stamping - building layers of stamped colour to create a multi toned card.  Altenew is one of the pioneers in this area and has an amazing range of floral stamps.

The next key part of the process are inks that are monochromatic - from light to deep shades.  A set of 3 - 4 monochrome inks is vital to successful floral stamp layering.  You can either use test swatches of ink colours you already have to find gradually increasing shades or buy sets that come that way.

Another important tool in this process is a good stamp press.  This way you can create multiples of the stamped image and set aside for later on.  It is easier to stamp the image multiple times once the stamp press is set up and then you have a few in reserve to use at a later date. 

These layered stamp sets are beautiful when creating scrapbooking layouts or cards.  Check out some of the creations below.
