Find Our About Friday - How to Make your stamped images look like they are speeding along.

For this week's Find Out About Friday I am going to share with you how to make your stamped images look like they are speeding along your card.

This card features the lovely speedboat image from the Need for Speed Stamp Set and was one of the cards we made at my last card class.
How to make your stamped images speed across your card

Creating this effect is fun and easy, and everyone enjoyed trying it and got great results.  

Ink your chosen stamp well with a non permanent ink like the Stampin' Up! Classic Inks.  Stamp where you want your image, in this case the speedboat, to end up.  

Quickly and without reinking the stamp, move the stamp back a little in the direction you want your image to come from, stamp again and then repeat this step until you have created a long enough trail.  Each time you stamp the image it will be a bit paler, creating this fun effect of movement.

I hope you decide to have a go at this technique.  If you would like to lean more about upcoming classes and learn new ways to use your stamps check out this link
