Dusting Stripes

I had some fun today playing with the "stripes" technique from Color Conversations.  Darlene shares a really cool tip about making sure stripes are masked off evenly in chapter 6 of the DVD.  As with most of her tips, it has to do with Eclipse tape and is easy and practical. Darlene also uses the 6" rolls of the tape to make multiple masks of the larger images she uses often.

Darlene uses wood-mounted stamps, but she makes matching up her image lines easy. She calls her eyes a "built in stamp positioner" : always available and free to use.  Comments like that make me laugh--and remind me that stamping doesn't have to be complicated.

My first card features stamps from Great Impressions, The Angel Company, and Mrs. O'Leary.

The images used on my second card may be familiar, as they were recently featured here on SQ as part of an I Brake for Stamps vendor challenge.

Am I the only one having fun dusting?

  1. Hi Carol -

    The only supplies needed to create the color dusting techniques are: dye ink pads (any brand), color duster brushes (by JudiKins), Eclipse tape (by Judikins), and your rubber stamps! That's it. How simple. And you can purchase everything you need right from Stampland Chicago. Their link is in the post, or you can find it in our Friends of Stamper's Quest blog roll.

  2. Good old fashioned dye based ink! She uses Marvy.
