For my stamping class next week, there are three different ways to do the technique I'm going to show. Try one or all of them, it's up to you!
The technique can be used on a card or as a border/embellishment on a scrapbook page. I think the digi girls could even play along, but I know I won't have time to try it out.
It's a great technique for those detailed stamps that you bought and then you thought, "Gee, why did I get this? Now I have to color it all in and it's gonna take forever!" If this sounds familiar... you're gonna love this class!
For version 1, you will need:
*a detailed image stamp (one that you could color in)
*a solid shape stamp (circle, square, etc... smaller than your detailed image)
*white cardstock for your main image, and any other colors you may want to mat it on, etc.
*black dye-ink pad (one that won't bleed) or black staz-on
*a pale color dye-ink pad
*you will also need colored pencils or markers, (or anything you would use to color in an image.)
For version 2 & 3:
you still need...
*a detailed image stamp (one that's easy to cut around for version 3)
*black ink pad, other colors optional
*white cardstock, and you also need black and other color(s) this time
*colored pencils/markers (for version 2)
and you will need...
*paper punches: circles/squares are great, or other shapes will work too (two nested shapes are perfect for version 2 if you have them, but if you don't that's ok)
*scissors (for version 3)
I think that's it. I'll be making my tutorial and samples over the next few days, so I'll add anything I may have forgotten as I realize it!!
Sorry I haven't been around much. I've been wanting to try all the classes, but haven't had time yet..... Yes, I said yet... because one of these days, I will do them!!
I really look forward to this class, because I have a few of "those" stamps that I have a hard time using.

Sounds great. I'll have to see if I have a pale color ink pad...
Can't wait! I have this awesome stamp(Thankyou Charys) but I get so stuck when it comes to stamping. I am always afraid I will ruin my page by a stamp I placed down wrong. Can't wait to try something with this stamp!
Rita, to believe the boys are already one. I still remember your dh's ring around their wrist.
uuuugggghhhh....... I just replied to each of you and lost the whole thing when I tried to post!!!
I think the most important thing was that if you don't have a pale color ink pad, it's probably ok... i'll explain tomorrow...
