The Happy St. Patty's Day stamp is perfect to stamp in shades of green. Using the MISTI makes this style of ombre` stamping easy! I started with the lightest shade first and only inked the top half of the stamp. For the medium shade of green, the ink pad was rocked onto the bottom half of the stamp. I blotted some of the ink off to help feather the transition. The darkest of the greens was added last and in the same way.

  • Stamps: Serendipity-Happy St. Patty's Day 1293E

  • Papers: Neenah 110, Bazzill, Authentique 6x6  & 12x12 Emerald
  • Other: Misti, May Arts silk ribbon, MFT Stitched dies
Thanks for looking and good luck!
