Stamp Etching-Fall Sunflower
I'm back today with a card using a new technique, for me, at least. The technique is stamp etching and can be found here on Splitcoaststampers. The idea is to use a fine tip marker to make lines within the image (petals here) with a flicking motion so that they are finer at the end than the beginning. Then, you can use your marker for heavier shading if you like. I tried to accomplish those things. This technique gives a lot of depth to the card.
See the stamp before I used the technique:
My image is from Inspired by Stamping/French Country. I colored the image with Copics and used a black sharpie for the technique.
Copics-YR12, 18, 24--Y28--YG0000, YG03, YG61
I'm entering my card into the Inspired by Stamping Customer Gallery Contest here.
Also, Addicted to Stamps is having challenge #109 CAS so I'll enter there.
