Technique Tuesday – Rock ‘n’ Roll with Daubers

By | February 2, 2021

Hi there

What picture do you get when you read the title of today’s post? Daubers doing Rock ‘n’ Roll moves in the craft room? Sorry to disappoint you but it’s not that exciting 🙂

The Rock ‘n’ Roll technique allows you to get two different colours onto the one stamp so that when you stamp the image it comes out with the two colours blended together. You can use inks pads to create this effect although I’ve chosen to use daubers to add my second colour as you get better control.

For my sample I’ve used the Timeless Tulips set. The stems have been inked with Soft Sea Foam a colour I don’t use much (not sure why that is). The Tulips have then been stamped with Purple Posy and then using a dauber inked in Blackberry Bliss I’ve lightly ‘tapped’ the edge of the stamp making sure I didn’t go too far into the stamp. You just want to get the second ‘coat’ of ink on the edge. The tulips were stamped on scrap Whisper White then ‘fussy cut’ out. Each image has slightly different colouring just like real flowers.

The card base is Purple Posy with a Whisper White mat which the stems were stamped on and then the tulips adhered directly. The top mat has been die cut with the Tasteful Lables die and then dry embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I had a few of these left over from a swap I did so you might see a few pop up in posts :). I didn’t take a photo of the inside of the card but I stamped a longer stem with a couple of leaves and the tulip was stamped in Blackberry Bliss.

Well that’s all for now. I hope you give this technique a try – either with ink pads or daubers.

Until next time …
