Welcome to Day 3 of this seven part video series! Yesterday I went monochromatic, and if you missed that video, you can check it out HERE.
All week I will be featuring the adorable Bork stamp set by Ink Road Stamps, showing different techniques and ideas to get the most from this flexible stamp set.
In today’s video I’m going to create a bright rainbow card by stamping in the round. That’s pretty much just a fancy way of saying I’m going stamp a single image repeatedly in a nice rainbow circle.
LESSON 3 – Don’t be afraid to overlap your stamps.
The first thing I did was draw up guide lines on the A6 white cardstock panel by measuring 5.3cm across the top and 7cm down the side … and ruling one light pencil line down, and another across.
The second thing I did was to use the stamps that I had already coloured and fussy cut, to help me with placement. When I placed a stamp along the line I picked it up with the lid of my Stamp Platform, erased the pencil line, then stamped with coloured ink. Be sure to erase pencil lines so they’re not trapped beneath the ink.

I love a good rainbow in colour wheel order, and by having each image overlap the last at the centre where they were quite close together, it creates a real graduation from one colour to the next. Here’s the video, so you can see the method I used to line this up.
