ROCK AND ROLL

The Rock and Roll Technique is easy, fun and effective in a plethora of design circumstances.

Incorporating the technique on this Mixed Bunch flower stamp adds even more zip to an already cute flower.

Do you see how the edges and the middle of the flower have a denser, more defined color? That look is achieved through the Rock and Roll Technique.


(I'd just like to mention that I have this card for sale in my Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/paperseedlings)

While the rest of the card is fairly easy to C.A.S.E. (copy and share everything) just by looking at it, here is the best way I can tell you how to do the Rock and Roll Technique and create this flower:

Ink up the stamp well with Daffodil Delight ink. Then, holding the inked stamp above the open Pumpkin Pie ink, sort of twist the stamp in a circular motion around in the ink, catching ink only on the edges of the flower. Use an Ink Dauber dipped in Pumpkin Pie ink on the center of the flower, pouncing it lightly several times. Huff on it and stamp this on white paper. 

Use the Blossom Punch to punch out the stamped flower. With the Blossom Punch, make a flower from Pumpkin Pie paper. Put a Stampin' Dimensional in the center to adhere the two punched flowers together, staggering the petals.

There! Are you ready to Rock and Roll?

Smiles.
