Stamping off...

gesso coated cardstock! Yes, it is another gesso technique - the last one of the recent techniques. This is one that I learned from The Technique Junkies Newsletter (http://www.techniquejunkies.com). If you like to learn new techniques or revisit oldies but goodies, then you should definitely check out the website!

Coat a relatively smooth piece of cardstock with a thin layer of gesso. Then, stamp your un-inked stamp into the gesso, wiggle slightly and lift up the stamp. Then, continue the process until you have the desired look. Once it dries, you can continue to creating your card. I used Club Scrap's Solstice kit for the card - embossing the white background in my Sizzix and highlighting the raised portions with ink. I used a light blue panel as my gesso-ed piece.
