Default Beginner's Stamping Question

I have been looking through the gallery (and admiring the wonderul work!) and I'm curious about a particular stamping "technique". If the stamp is a solid design and you want to stamp that image with multiple colors, how do you do it? Do you "paint" the stamp with the ink from the stamp pad or do you use some type of special markers? (see the Bundle Up stamp set in the gallery - the sweaters are done in 2 colors to give a striped effect). It seems most of the images are referencing SU ink colors........

TIA!!

You can color directly on the stamp with the markers. When you're done just kind of "huff" on the stamp to moisten the ink and stamp onto your paper.

You can use watercolor crayons, but I haven't done that, so I can't help you with that one.

Looks like they have used SU markers on that stamp. There is also another technique called rock n' roll where you use two inks for example: http://images.splitcoaststampers.com...70_by_J-Bo.jpg I stamped the flower in almost amethesyt and then rolled the edges in take with teal. you can find lots of tutorials on this type of technique.

The watercolor crayon technique is very similar to the markers. You basically just color right onto the stamp, then instead of huffing on your stamps you mist them with water and then stamp. It's a really pretty watercolor effect.

Your best bet for what you're trying to achieve would be to use the markers.
