Direct Ink meets Triple Stamping….

… actually in this case I think it is Double stamping.  I am not sure of the correct name for this technique, I have seen it called a number of different things, but whatever it is called, it is a great technique.

This first card I am going to enter into this week’s Retro Sketches challenge since it was their sketch that inspired me 🙂

I have used the Direct Ink onto cardstock technique using the colours Pool Party and Old Olive, and then I have used the Triple stamping technique for the silhouette in Basic Grey.  The silhouette image comes from one of my all time favourite stamp sets Serene Silhouettes.

The second card uses similar techniques only this time I have used the ink directly onto the clear block and then stamped that onto the cardstock.  It is just a little more subtle, but still very effective.  The colours are the same, only this time it is the French Foliage stamp set (another favourite!)

 

If you like the Triple Stamping technique, live in the Canberra area, and would like to learn more about how to use this technique, I will be running classes on Tuesday 26th March at 1pm and Wednesday 27th March at 7.30pm.  Bookings are essential as places are limited, so contact me asap to book your seat.  I will also organise a class on the Direct Ink techniques, probably in late April or early May, details coming soon.

Happy stamping!
Chris
