Techniques on Tuesday: Repetition Stamping

This technique helps you to create the illusion of movement with your stamping. It is great for stamps that have items that are moving or move.

Supplies that you will need: stamps, inks and card stock.

Step by Step Instructions

  • Before you stamp your inked image workout which direction you are going to go with your repetition stamping. This will determine if the image is moving backwards or forwards.
  • Ink up your image and stamp once. Now without re-inking your image move the stamp slightly and stamp again. Keep going until you either run out of ink or space.
  • For the swing card I made sure that I pivoted from one spot as I stamped backwards to the left.

Variations for this technique

  • You can create a mask for your stamped image. I did this by stamping my car image on a post it note and cutting it out.
  • Once you have inked up your images and stamped it once place your mask on before doing the repetition stamping without re-inking. This will stop the over stamping on your original image but still give the illusion of movement.
  • For the car card I stamped the repeated images to the right. By stamping a splodge image along the bottom you ground your repetition stamping so it didn’t look like it is floating in mid air.
