Using my sepia archival ink, I'm gonna set my otter stamp on my white paper as seen below.
Such a pretty and fantastic stamp for a freebie from a magazine! I also think that sepia works well particularly if you are using animals as a stamp!
Trim the white paper down to size.
For the background, think of a color that will work perfectly with sepia. As for me, I'm going to use a teal card stock. It works really well with the sepia color in our stamp.
Next, trim the paper to size as seen below.
Ink up the edges to give the illusion that it is separated from your background.
Then add the dimension dots and stick it on your paper as you can see below. It slightly raises the sentiment from the background and gives a fantastic dimension effect.
Using a paper cutter, trim your background paper to the actual card size.
Now, add it on top of another card with a different color.
Look how instant and brilliant that is!
By using the two stamps and mixing contrasting colors, you get a quick and beautiful card!
Here's another stamping tip I wanted to share with you! Instead of using the stamp at the forefront of your card, you can use it as a background too!
Using the same otter stamp, I inked it up using a green archival ink.
Stamp it on a white piece of paper as seen below.
Now I don't really want it to be that sharp, and so I am going to get rid of my first stamp and allow it to come off the edges. So it sort of looks like wrapping paper wood.
And now, we've got this really lovely otter pattern as a background!
Get your card stock and trim it into a smaller size so that we can see the otters in there.
As for me, I used my teal colored paper as seen below.
You can now add your sentiment in the middle of a small white piece of paper.
Trim the white paper down.
Then adhere it to the middle.
As you can see, the stamps were used as the background and it has made a completely different look to the one that we have done first.
There are really so many simple ways that you can use these stamps!
You can either use it as a forefront or a background to your awesome card!
