September 13...Stampington and the backside


(Sorry this posted late. The power at my house went out for quite some time.)
I don't think today's technique has a name. But it's fab and comes in handy. I have used Stampington & Company's clear stamps. This is from their unusual suspects line. They have so many wonderful stamps and stuff AND I LOVE all their magazines as well. Today one lucky person will have a chance to win the stamp set that contains these characters as well as a magazine. YAY Just leave a comment by midnight tonight. :) First off you start by turning your clear stamp upside down on the acrylic block so that the flat sticky part is up.
Then you stamp the image in your ink and paper of choice.
Turn the image on the block so that it is the "correct" way and stamp over the first image. And there you have it. You just doubled your stamps. This works best with mirrored images, but I wasn't going for something perfectly aligned here.
I love home decor, so I used these images and WONDERFUL art paper from Stampington & Company to turn into a fun little hanging. I went over the whole image in clear embossing ink and UTEE, adhered it to chipboard, punched holes, and tied the ribbon. I think I'll look around and embellish them some more, but you got the idea of the technique.
