SP Un-Stamping Technique

I used a cool "un-stamping" technique with this card containing images from Sweet Pea plate #7 "Love Is Blind."  You can see the entire plate HERE
1)  Stamp image with Memento ink
2)  Color only the part you will be removing color from
3)  Pour small amount of blending solution in plastic lid and
dab with Tim Holtz applicator then apply to "busy" stamp
4)  Place alcohol-ed stamp over original stamped image and
press down as if stamping (this removes color)
5)  Repeat if necessary-embellish and finish as desired

My sample uses Sweet Pea Stamps image.  I colored the dress with a
Copic marker, then removed color partially to create sense of pattern
by overstamping with alcohol blending solution which removed some of 
the marker.
For this technique you will need alcohol-based markers.  The
blending solution removes the alcohol marker color in the design
or depth of your "busy" stamp for a cool textured effect.

**Important**  Only color that portion of your image that you will be removing
color from as the blending solution removes any alcohol-based ink.  You can color the rest after
you have done steps 3-5.

Connie, this is lovely. I really like the colors you had chose. This stamp does not get used enough, it would make a wonderful notecard to someone.
