Technique Tuesday: Rock and Roll

Rock And Roll: Using two colors of ink to add dimension to a stamped image.  For this card I used So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie.  The color differences are subtle but make a big difference on the card.
First, you ink the stamp with the lighter colored ink.  Then you roll just the edges of the stamp in a darker color.  This creates the two tone effect that I think is gorgeous on leaves.

Come back on Friday... I will be focusing on the French Foliage Stamp Set with more beautiful examples.
