Rock 'n Roll is Here to Stay!!!

Here is the final technique page before the Blog Candy will be offered. But it's NOT the final technique page I will be making. There are a LOT more to be posted in the months to come!!! Every technique (old or new) that I run across I will be eventually making a page with it.

The Rock 'n Roll technique is a very fun and easy technique to do. There is not a whole lot to it either. I find it easier to work with round stamps but other stamps will work as long as you can catch the edges on the ink pad.

Ink your rubber stamp with the lighter color of ink.

Take the rubber stamp and roll the edges in the darker color of ink. If using a flower stamp, the tips of the petals will be where the darker color will be applied by rolling the stamp on the ink pad.

Accent the stamped image with a contrasting color for the layering.

See, I told you it was a very simple technique but it sure does add a lot to the image, doesn't it?

Tomorrow I will be updating the slider on the right side bar of the blog so you can see all of the pages or you can click here to see them too. And on that post you may leave a comment/answer a question - not sure yet what I'm going to do for you to be entered in the drawing for the Technique Pages blog candy!

SO stay tuned!!

It's surprising to see how many different techniques I've used but not listed when prompted in SCS! I just rereviewed the pages that have gone into the book and am SO GLAD you used a label so we can find them easily. Thanx for sharing 'em, and thanx for the t'riffic blog candy opp!

Now this is one technique that never looks good when I do it. Not sure why. Yours however turned out perfect.

Wanda: You Rock and Roll! And thanks for stating this won't be your last technique-Heaven Help Us if that were to happen.

Thanks for sharing all these awesome Techniques. Will keep my eyes open over the next couple of days for your Blog Candy.

Hi Wanda!
I think this technique looks especially good when you use, what do you call it, monochromatic colors.
Like Groovy Guava with Blush Blossom, or Mustard with Summer Sun. Makes a neat shading effect.
Thanks for writing it all down for us!

I really love this technique. I have that same stamp and that is about the only one I have done that technique on. It works great with that flower.
