Rock & Roll Rose

The Rock & Roll technique is an easy way to get lot of dimension from your stamps. Roses in Winter is my favorite set to use for this technique but you can use pretty much any stamp that is fairly solid.

I used Pretty in Pink and Cranberry Crisp ink on my rose.

First layer: Ink up the stamp in Pretty in Pink. Take your inked stamp and roll just the edges of the rubber in Cranberry Crisp. Stamp.


Second layer: Repeat inking directions for layer one. Stamp.


Third layer: Ink the final stamp in Cranberry Crisp. Stamp.


Finish your card:


For this finished card I used:

Stamps: Roses in Winter, Small Script

Paper: Pretty in Pink, Cranberry Crisp, Chocolate Chip

Ink: Basic Black, Pretty in Pink, Cranberry Crisp, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
