Sponge Stamping

This is an extremely easy technique called Sponge Stamping. Once you try it, you’ll have fun using this technique on flowers, balloons, lettering and anything you can dream up. J Here’s how:

Supplies:

Stamps
Inks
Sponges (I like to use inexpensive makeup wedges. You can find them anywhere beauty products are sold).

Directions:

1.      Decide on 2 or 3 ink colors you would like to use. You can use more than 3 ink colors if you would like but it is easy to make it appear muddied and too overwhelming so I suggest using no more than 3 colors.

2.      Ink your stamp by folding your sponge in half and tapping it on the ink pad to pick up ink. Then pat it on your stamp in the desired areas. Repeat with the next color. In the sample above I inked the center of the butterfly in Hollyhock ink, and then used Topiary ink on the outer edges, slightly overlapping the colors where the inks met.

3. I like to “huff” or breath on the stamp to moisten it, and then stamp. I suggest cleaning the stamp between inkings. That’s it! Have fun!
