Technique Tuesday – Perfect Plaid!

Happy Tuesday!!! You know what that means……I have a fabulous technique to share with you today! This one is super fun and really rather easy! The best part….you can mix and mingle a million different colors and come out with something different each time! I love that!

Work of Art Plaid,

How cute is that? I mean masculine! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I used the Work of Art Stamp Set! This is by far my favorite stamp set right now. You can see more samples using this set here and here!

Supplies Needed:ย  Work of Art Stamp Set, 2-3 Ink Pads, Cardstock

I used the long straight image from the Work of Art Set to create this look. You can use 2-3 different colors. I found when I used a 3rd color, I always felt it was off because I either didn’t have enough of that 3rd color or it was just a mess of too many colors but I’m crazy like that. My piece of cardstock measures 3-3/4″ x 2-1/2″. I decided to use this size because it fits the stamp. You could go big and have it layer the entire card (4″ x 5-1/4″) but you would need to stamp twice to create the line all the way across. I used the NEW In-Colors – Lost Lagoon and Mossy Meadow for the card pictured above. You will ink up one of the colors and stamp down, moved about 1/4″ and stamp again without re-inking. Ink up with that color and keep doing that all the way across. Then turn your piece 90 degrees and with the 2nd color do the same thing, stamp, move up a little and stamp again without re-inking. You could also do all dark (inking and stamping) along one side and all light stamping (stamping off once) along the other side. You can mix it up to however you wish….endless possibilities! Here is a Video Tutorial for you to watch this technique in action! Be sure to like and subscribe to the video so you never miss out!
