Black Out Technique - Shaded Summer

 Hello and welcome to today's post on For The Love of Stamping. I created this card using a technique called "Black Out". I find it very striking and love the impact this card makes. This technique really isn't complicated but you will need some supplies to make this card.

Start with an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of Polished Pink cardstock and fold in half. Layer a piece of black on top of card front.

  1. Adhere 2 strips of post-it tape on the diagonal across the white cardstock – leave about a 2” opening.
  2. Starting from the right side, blend the ink onto the white layer (between the post-it tape) in the following order: Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, Gorgeous Grape and Magenta Madness.
    1. Let the ink dry completely before stamping
  3. Swipe the embossing buddy over the surface of the blended ink
    1. Randomly stamp floral images using Shaded Summer stamp set, in Versamark and emboss with clear embossing powder. 
  4. Blend Memento ink over the area between the post it tape with a blending brush – wipe as you go with a paper towel to pull the excess ink off the embossed images. 
  5. Line up a sentiment in the Stamp-A-Ratus and stamp with Memento ink as shown in picture.
  6. Adhere a few Iridescent rhinestones on the card front as shown above.
