Hi there creative people! Do you fancy some multicolor stamping technique? Without any ink pads? All you need is few jars of Magicals (for more distress looks you can also use Lindy’s sprays and Squirts).
This is the first part of my multicolor stamping projects for Lindy’s- I find there are so many ways and so many possibilities with this technique. Next time I will make a more colorful project, so you will be able to see the difference even better.
Now let me tell you my process step- by- step:
- Use multi-technique/ mixed media or watercolor paper is preferable and the best effects are achieved if you don’t prime the paper with gesso- just leave it as it is
- The best stamped images are achieved if you dilute your Magical in a tiny bit of water, the secret here is to not them too dilute them too much, just a little, so they don’t run like water; for me, the best tell is when I still can see some tiny powders particles which are still not diluted completely
- I diluted two Magical colors on my desktop- Stormy Sky and Screamin Banshee Black (I wanted similar, blackish colors this time to make a scary, Halloween project, then I rubbed in them the stamp, mixing the together a little; I stamped the image on the page and repeated the process, adding a little bit of water to move the paint
- The rest of the paint was used to color the edges of the journal by using a sponge and to color a perfect circle, which is the integral part of my focal point (while coloring the circle the nicest effect you’ll get by adding the colors a little at a time and drying in between to achieve watercolor-like stains)
- I embossed the middle of the circle with an embossing pad, stamp and Lindy’s EP- Obviously Black, then I crinkled it in my hands to achieve a grungy look
- The second part of my focal point was a fussy cut image which I stamped on the piece of paper beforehand, then I added some rub-ons, some spider web and adhere all of it to the page

Once again thank you for stopping by and for all fo you who celebrate it- Happy Halloween!
