NEW VIDEO: Two Colors on One Stamp

On Friday, I shared a super-fun card with you that paired Real Red and Melon Mambo on one sentiment.  You can see that project here.  While it might appear that this was magical in every way, there are actually some rules about applying multiple inks to one stamp.  I thought I would review them with you today.  Rather than bore you with a big, long write-up about this topic, I thought it would be fun to share my thoughts in a video.  I hope you enjoy!

So, what do you think?  It’s pretty simple, huh?  There are so many ways to play with inks on a stamp.  There are so many opportunities to use two inks on one stamp to create wonderful and fun projects!  What colors will you combine to create a fun, ombre effect of your own?
