One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Make It Monday #60: Generational Stamping

How's this for an idea--double the number of ink colors you have without spending a penny!  It's so very simple. Ashley Cannon-Newell is here this week to show you how. If you would like to watch the video, then please go HERE  and check out this new Make It Monday technique.  Basically Ashley inked up a stamp and then stamped several times with it, making each image a bit lighter in times depending the color you select, it gives it a softer shade and sometimes it looks like a different ink was used, just in the same family tone...really this is my take on it.  I pulled out the Bells & Boughs stamp set and stamped the bells going down a strip of paper, I used Blueberry Sky ink and stamped, then stamped again..I used both sizes of the bells.  I heat embossed the sentiment using White Filgree powder.
