Monochrome stamping technique – It is a creative way of producing an image using one ink colour in at least a dozen varying shades. In my card making, I combine several stamp sets and at least a dozen colours to achieve the monochromatic effect that I want.
Monochrome stamping is my favourite technique because it gives me the enjoyment of stamping and playing with colour.
So let’s get to it but first, ever wonder what to do with the itty bitty stamps in your stamp sets? Stampin’ Up! sets usually have them. This is the perfect project for it so make sure you bring them out.
Here’s how to monochrome:
- Choose at least 5 varying shades of a single colour, for example blue
- Pick out a main image for your card or artwork, for example a person and then stamp it in the darkest colour
- Surround the main image with small stamp images, for example flowers, leaves, stars etc
I hope that you enjoyed this inspiration and that you’ll also give it a go.
