Normally, I prefer to stamp on kraft card stock with pigment or chalk inks; dye inks tend to “sink” into kraft paper and lose their vibrancy… become dark… dull…

Dark? Dull? Ack. No likey. (hair flip)

So, out of curiosity, I tried stamping with white ink first, then over-stamped with water-based dye inks. Just to see if that would give the dye inks more “oomph”.

Hey, Mikey! I likey!

I don’t know if the single images in this sweet floral set, Water Blooms by Mama Elephant, are supposed to be identical to their counterparts in the grouped images, but IMHO, they don’t necessarily have to be, nor do they have to be stamped “perfectly” over top, in order to pull off this effect.

Have a great weekend! :)





  1. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the
    structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
