Fun techniques using Lucky Elephant

I always get really excited when I get a new stamp set and try and think outside the box and not just stamp the image. Making a stamp set go further by using various different techniques to achieve totally different looks is part of the fun.

Lucky Elephant 142936 wood mount £15 or 142939 clear mount £12  (use shop button above to order) is a fabulous image at a great price.
Kissing Technique - ink the stamp in pool party then using dapper denim and Timeless Textures stamp set with the floral image stamp over the pool party several times in different directions. Huff on the stamp and then stamp onto whisper white cardstock. The result is a two  toned image.

Black Magic Technique -  stamp the image with white craft ink on black cardstock and allow to dry. Colour the image with our watercolour pencils in a patchwork design. Draw round the outside lines and patchwork with a white gel pen or chalk marker and create a water shower from the elephants trunk.

If you would like to try some of these techniques then please join me on one of my monthly technique classes. Just get in touch allmark.j@sky.com
