Techniques on Tuesday: Inking Stamps with Markers

You do not always need to have ink pads to add some colour to your stamps. In fact inking your stamps with markers can give you a very colourful result. You can also illuminate or choose a section of the stamp by just colouring what you want on an image.

Step by Step Instructions

  • Chose the colours and stamps you wish to use.
  • With the brush end of your marker apply the colour onto your stamp. Note: use your marker on its side not the tip.
  • You can use more than one colour on your stamps. If you are going to blend two colours start with the lighter colour first.
  • Once you have finished adding the colour to your stamp you will need to give a huff or blow onto the coloured image to re-moisten the ink before stamping onto card stock.
  • you can now finish your card or project.
