Technique blog hop- Generation stamping

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are 4 of us highlighting the Generation StampingThis blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique. 

If you are coming from Wendy's Blog, you are on the right track! 

For this technique I decided to make a couple of cards showing various generations of stamping.
This picture is an example of what Generation stamping is. Generation stamping is where you ink a stamp once but may use it many times before re-inking the stamp. In the picture above the stamped image to the left is a first generation stamp. This means that it was inked then stamped. The next set of images are second generation... this is where a stamp is inked then stamped twice with out re-inking the stamp. Then there is a third generation stamped image on that picture but as you see they are very faded. 

 This card I stamped the image of every day is an adventure, and because it is bright and crisp in color you can tell it was a first generation stamping.

 On this card I did second generation stamping of the dragon fly stamp set, which is why in this picture you may not be able to read " you make my heart". Also to go along with the faded look that the second generation stamping gives I used water color pencils to color in the dragonfly some.


This is the inside of the dragonfly card, and I did first generation stamping here. The colors look very crisp in part because I used pigment ink for the hearts.
