HOW TO ADD DETAIL TO YOUR STAMPS

Welcome Stamping Friends. Today I am here to share a little trick to take your most basic images to the next level. Do you love the little details in painted florals and gorgeous fabrics. It's actually quite easy to achieve with your stamped images too.

You will need a few supplies, willingness to give it a try because it is pretty simple. If you think you aren't an artist or painter,Great! Because there is no need to be. It's a very forgiving method and if you mess up try again on a new image. Your images are not being recorded or photographed and I really encourage you to just try!  Don't take my word for it , enjoy the process and feel like a rockstar stamper when you are done!

In the video I show you how to easily add the detail using your reinker, inkpads with a detail paintbrush. A small paintbrush is key and remember you don't need top of the line for this type of technique. Just a bristle that doesn't have a bunch of random hairs and keeps its shape. The painterly look is a bit messy. 
I usually add detail with the darker shade of the color but for a more subtle look you can use tone on tone just remember you will likely need to be sure your ink is fully dry before adding the detail layer. Re inkers are my favorite because the color is very saturated. However, smooshing your ink pad will give you a similar result.

I hope you are inspired to give this technique a try and take your stamped images to the next level! 

Here's to a Crafty and productive week!
