TECHNIQUES
  Sponging
  2-Step Stamping
  Stamping Off
TIPS:
 Sponging:

  1. Sponge ink lightly—you can always add more it if not dark enough.
  2. Dragging the sponge over the edges of the card will ink edges softening the amount of ink on card.

      2-Step Stamping:

  1. It can be done in two ways and just depends on the card. Here we are stamping the outline first, followed by the inside of the bird.
  2. In cases where 2 colors are used, stamp the lighter color first followed by the darker color.
