Technique: Subtractive Stamping

Instead of adding paint to the card with the stamp, this technique removes it with a stamp!

You will need:

  • gessoed card
  • craft paint
  • foam stamps
  • brayer
  • plastic craft mat

I put a couple of drops of craft paint on the mat and used the brayer to apply paint to the card until it was covered.

I immediately stamped a clean, dry, foam stamp on the card and removed it.

This worked really well. I also liked the texture that was created by rolling the paint onto the card with a brayer, over the gesso!
