Dimensional Effects With Inks

Hey there Junkies!!! 

I'm here with a really fun technique for you to try.  I don't know if it's been done before, however, it "just happened" at my craft table as I was stamping today and I loved the results.  


I started with a piece of Valentine designer paper from a 6x6 "American Crafts" pad I bought for $2.50 at AC Moore (I think). It's hard for me to pass up a deal on paper.

Anyway, I put the paper in my MISTI and using this new background stamp from Technique Junkies January Release, called "Love Overlay", I first stamped it with a dye ink called "Raspberry Jam" by Hero Arts. Without moving my stamp, I cleaned it and then moved the paper over to the left about 1/8". This time I stamped with Memento Black Tuxedo ink. Once more, I cleaned the stamp, after making sure the ink was dry, I then brushed anti static powder over the paper, moved the paper over another 1/8".  This time I used VersaMark ink and after stamping with it, I sprinkled Ranger Queens Gold ep over the paper and heat embossed it.  Next I used a stitched frame die to cut out the image and then sponged Distress Inks, Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar on the panel.  

I adhered it to a card layer of "Eggplant" cs (by GKD).  I absolutely loved how that bg stamp showed itself off with this technique.  It looks so dimensional but it's only one layer!  

To finish the card, I die cut the word "Love" several time in the "eggplant" cs (A Savvy Stamp Die) and in gold paper.  I layered them one on top of the other and layered that against a banner die from MFT, also cut in "eggplant" cs. 

I hope you grab yourself some crafting time today....it's fun there!

The effect is amazing. It does look like a cut out with shadows behind. Very, very cool.

Wow! I had to reread to believe that was only one layer. I will definitely be trying something like this. Thanks so much for sharing.

That dimension is really effective. I couldn't figure out what you were talking about until you said it is a one layer card because you had me convinced the gold was something 3-D you put on the top. You rock!

Thank you so much, ladies. I know what Beth means....I couldn't stop looking at it after I'd done all the stamping. It was one of those "wow" moments. I hope you get a chance to try this...it's really fun to see what develops. Show case what you do on the TJ Facebook page....I'd love to see what everyone else does with this.

What a great faux 3D effect that the 1/8 inch shift gives! I'm thinking of so many ways I can experiment with this. Thanks for sharing this technique.
