With stamp facing up start coloring your image with a marker.
Step 2 (Optional)
To add more depth, take a slightly darker color and add shading directly on the stamp.
Continue to use markers to fully color your image.
Huff (exhale to moisten the ink) on your image before stamping it on cardstock.
Markers are a great way to use only a part of an image or sentiment. Simply just ink up the part of the stamp that you want to use.
This technique is called omitting.
Add more partial sentiment to create a completely new one.
Most markers have a brush and fine tip. The fine tip can be used to add doodling to your image layer.
Instead of huffing on your inked image, mist the stamp with water. Check the tutorial for it HERE.
