Hey there! We have a great word for Word Week over at Just Us Girls. Sue has chosen the word "shadow" as the word. Lots of opportunities for inspiration!
I happened to come upon an older video from Jennifer McGuire and she did a technique that she called shadow stamping. I have to admit that I shamelessly cased her cards! To make this technique work, you need a layering stamp set. I used this set from Simon Says Stamp/WPlus 9 called Many Thanks. I put the first layer in the MISTI and stamped it with white pigment ink. Then I turned the cardstock around and stamped it again. Then I placed the second layer onto the first (after the ink had dried) and stamped it with a coordinating ink to match the cardstock. So you get the white ink as the shadow, a lighter color that was stamped over the white ink with the colored ink, and a darker ink color. Here I used Calypso Coral cardstock and Tutti Frutti ink. Each card has a different sentiment stamped in Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. Clear crystals finished them off.
Here I used Parrot ink and Lucky Limeade cardstock.
Here's one with Bermuda Bay cardstock and ink.
And this last one uses Melon Mambo cardstock and ink.
