Cut Apart Plaid Tutorial
Cut apart your cling or unmounted Woven Plaid Stamp as shown here:
(hint... when cutting any stamp apart, add a notch or zigzag so when you want to use the stamp in its original form, they fit together like puzzle pieces)
Start by placing just the largest section on your acrylic mount and ink it with your first ink color. We used taupe dye ink for this card.
Stamp your card on a diagonal as shown.
Rotate the card to make the stamped image horizontal and then fill the card above the single stamped image leaving about 1/8" in between each.
(hint - we recommend stamping ABOVE the first image to make lining up your impressions much easier) Just rotate it half way through to finish the pattern.
Choose your second ink color and once again stamp the large secion of Woven Plaid it at an angle in the center, crossing the first lines stamped.
Rotate the card and stamp above the center green image leaving 1/8" between images
and continue until the card is filled.
Next, remove the widest part of the plaid stamp from your acrylic mount and replace it with the smallest piece.
Using a third ink color and the smallest section of the plaid, stamp in the center of the widest part of the plaid images
Approximate Stamping Time: 15 Minutes
