If you're ready to take your passion for rubber stamping to the next level and crave a new challenge, try these innovative techniques - you'll use them again and again, on everything you make, from gift-wrap to scrapbooks. They're easy to learn yet produce sophisticated results on cards. Take cheesecloth out of the kitchen and onto the crafting table for crating dynamic patterns. Combining a brayered background with coloured tissue paper or garden leaves can be spectacular, especially if you develop an attractive layout, colour-copy it, then stamp directly onto it. A resist method will have you working with embossing, markers, and dye ink. Paint with blender pen and dry pigment powder, add shimmer with gilding, or fill in the open areas of your stamped image with dimensional products like coloured glitter glue.
