2-Minute Tuesday Tip – Create a Shadow Effect with Any Stamp


Last week I shared a tip on creating a shadow effect from the Vertical Garden or Double Take stamp set.  Today I want to share with you how to create an amazing shadow effect with just about any stamp.

It takes a couple extra steps to achieve the look of a shadow with other stamps but hey, we stamp because it’s fun and we are always looking to learn new techniques.

My card is just a clean and simple card.  I wanted the shadow to be the focal image and not clutter the card with anything else.  Sometimes I just like a clean and simple card.  

Let me share today’s video…

 

Here’s what I used to create my clean and simple card.  To order, just click a pic!

    Is there a reason you stamped in the dark ink first and then stamped over the dark ink with the light ink for the shadow effect? Wouldn’t stamping in the light ink first and then the dark ink, in a sense working backwards, to get the light shadow effect. Then the dark ink would be covering the light ink instead of the light color being on top of the dark color.
