Soaring Love


As promised in my February Newsletter I have created a card featuring a stamping off technique or Repetition Stamping.  Another terms for this Technique would be first and second generation, with this example having 5 generations. In this card the technique has been used to give an illusion of movement as the plane takes flight. The idea did come from Tracie St Lewis on Pinterest.

I created the card by making a background with Sponging and Aqua Painters to create the sky then stamped directly onto the dry background in Archival Ink.

Added the greeting from the same stamp set “Sky is the Limit” and a few jewels and card done. Apart from the drying this technique gives a quick effective card, with minimal supplies. Think bikes, cars, old gramophones, running bunnies for Easter. Let the imagination run riot.
