You are not doing it right it is swish and.....

Stamp! Sorry couldn't help the play on a line from Harry Potter on this one! This will be a mega quick card and blog post but I loved the feel of the card.
Simply take a pale distress ink (I used old paper) and placing the pad face down on your card swish it across in a fairly quick motion, so you get a band of colour. Dry it and then take your silhouette stamp and first stamp it in Black Soot ink and again dry it and then stamp another in a more pale colour such as pumice stone, slightly overlapping the black one, to make it look like it is stood behind. The drying between each stage is important as the damp ink can interfere with your stamping.

Easy and quick but really atmospheric!

Happy Crafting
