Layered Linen Technique

Pin It

I love using this technique with the Lifetime stamps that come with the Passages Basic Kit.  Start with the lightest color (Bamboo) ink pad and scrape the edge of it across a piece of Colonial White Cardstock going one direction two or three times.  Turn the paper 90 degrees and scrape it again.  Repeat steps with Desert Sand, Brown Bag, and Cocoa pads.  Stamp some of the smaller stamps from the stamp set in Bamboo and Desert Sand and a few larger stamps in Brown Bag and Cocoa.  I used the stitches border in the Lifetime set around the edges of Layered Linen piece.  The saying is from the Live Inspired set which is stamped onto a piece of Bamboo cardstock with Cocoa ink.  The edges are scraped with Cocoa ink as well.  Let me know if you have any questions!
