Rubber Stamp Techniques Classes

Dragonfly Card: We’ll brayer multicolored ink and then use bleach to lift off the color with our rubber stamp. We also use multicolored ink to emboss an embellishment.

Thinking of You: Chalkboard technique using chalk pastels and bleach to achieve the color.

Dahlia: Perfect alignment of multi-layered stamps. We’ll use chalk ink, pigment ink, dye ink and watercolor pencil to achieve the look. We’ll talk about the differences in the inks and when to use what.

Flower spray: Heavy watercolor paper and water based markers. We’ll show you multiple uses for all those markers you’ve invested in.

My intent for this class is to give you additional ways to use some of the supplies you already have and to give you new ways to look at rubber stamps. Please bring along a stamp that you've purchased that you aren't in love with. We'll talk about different ways you might use it in your creations.
