Extra Steam Power #3

Servus and welcome to another dose of "ESP" (Extra Steam Power) that will hopefully spark inspiration and have you wanting to rush to your crafting desks. This time lovely Kerstin from Scrapbook Dreams is sharing an easy to follow tutorial in which she shows how to get most out of your everyday stamps by adding a steampunk twist to them. Enjoy! xxx

Hi everyone,

Kerstin here today with a simple stamp technique, where you can "design" your own steampunk stamp 
- Two become one new -
with special effect ;-)

 All you need is:
two clear stamps and an ink pad 
for another variation an embossing ink pad, heat tool and embossing powder 
Are you ready to go :-)?!




  • 1. Ink your first stamp
  • 2. remove the color  with a lint-free cloth in the centre (or wherever you want)
  • 3. stamp with your first stamp
  • 4. find out wich part of the gear stamp suits. Using a clear stamp makes this pretty easy as you can see through
  • 5. ink only the part you need and stamp it on top the first stamped image
  • 6. voila, that's all :-) 
  • optional: if you use embossing ink and powder with step 5 you can also create some extra sparkling effect and texture
 


I used this technique on my art journal spread Under the Sea
more details you can see on my blog.
