Oh my! That sounds a little strange :0) Don’t get too worried, it is not as weird as you might think (ha, ha). It is a simple stamping technique used to add texture and interest to a plain image. It is a three step process:
Step 1: Ink up a plain, solid stamp. I used a heart shaped stamp by Hero Arts.
Step 2: Stamp it on a stencil that is a pattern. I used a Kaisercraft stencil.
Step 3: Stamp onto another piece of paper to see the beautiful texture created by the stencil.
