Foam Stamps, Wood Stamps, Clear Acrylic Stamps…


What’s the to-do about stamps?
Well, stamps are another way (like stencils) to get an image on the page which you don’t have to actually draw! So, you don’t get to use the excuse “I can’t draw, so I can’t do this art stuff everyone is doing”! Just find a stamp of flowers or butterflies or a silhouette of a little girl and get that image on your page!

The only thing I have to caution you about is what you are using for “ink”. I have not found any brand of “stamp pads” that don’t bleed through to the other side of Bible Paper. So there are several alternatives you can use to make a great looking image and save your paper from the dreaded “bleed-through”…

1. Use Gesso to “prep your page”, which will protect your bible paper
2. Use a bleed through marker to… brush on the stamp, huff your breath on the ink to moisten, then stamp on bible page. Wahla, the “non bleed marker” won’t be through your paper when used alone or on a stamp!

The Faber Castell Stamper’s Big Brush Marker is perfect for this. Why? Because Faber Castell uses the “India Ink” which is a wonderful non-bleed ink.

So, now that the secret is out… let’s get stamping!
