Day 7: Stamping Tip - Stamping with Markers

Day 7: Stamping with Markers*


Step 1Place any My Acrylix® stamp on an appropriate-sized block and color with markers. In our example, we applied different colors to the stems and berry edges.

« Step 2Prior to stamping, exhale on the image to lightly moisten the ink, then stamp as usual.

Step 3Drawing ink from a stamp pad, use a Sponge Dauber or E-Z Sponge Applicator to add additional color to the image, rubbing the ink in a circular motion. (We added a lighter shade of ink to the inside of each stamped berry.) As a general rule, Sponge Daubers apply more color more quickly than E-Z Sponge Applicators, but E-Z Sponge Applicators allow for greater color control.
