Rolling in Leaves

I am not anywhere ready for fall. I feel like summer just got here. However I LOVE this new paper pack and stamp set that will be available in the Autumn/Winter 2009 Idea book

I love acorns. They are so fun. I also love doing the "rolling" technique with leaves. So if you have never tried that technique then let me show you how. Well, actually I am just going to tell you how.

Rolling is a great way to add those special effects to your solid stamps.

1) You will need two inks for this technique. Stamp your image in the lightest color first. In my sample I used sweet leaf ink on the leaf.
2) Before you stamp the images, roll the edges of the stamp in a darker color. In my sample I rolled sorbet ink on the leaf.
3) Stamp the image and you should have a two-toned effect.

Congratulations!!!! You now know how to roll.
