Those Pesty Reverse Stamps

By: Sue Trembeth, Artistic Guide

Hello  Faithful Artists!

Have you all seen all those new reverse stamps that Hero Arts has come out with? I would look at them and think, "What the heck?!  I can't use these!" I would just pass them by without another glance!

 

While blog hopping one day, I came across a video by Jennifer Maguire using these pesty reverse stamps. I watched the video and I was HOOKED!! I immediately was on HA website ordering a variety of reverse stamps.

When my package finally arrived I spent the day in my Studio playing.  I am sure I have only begun to find all the possibilities.

Over the next few days I will show you a variety of samples using reverse stamps.

Lets start with what hooked me.

Please watch this video by Jennifer Maguire:

Layered Embossed Resist

The card featured today is basically just an exact copy of what Jennifer did. You have to start at the beginning, you know! Come back tomorrow and I will have more samples and some how-tos.

See you soon,

Sue T.
