How excited was I to discover that Unity Stamp Company has a new line of stamps designed by Stephanie Ackerman?! The answer is very… much… tons. I ordered several from this line and others. They are full of inspiring words and I couldn’t wait to get creating with them. Today I am sharing the easiest project out there. Just stamp, scan, enlarge, print, cut out and frame!
You can color with copic markers if you want, or scan and open in Photoshop to color digitally.
For this one, I added shading in Photoshop with the drop shadow function. Stephanie has a great class (several great classes, actually) teaching you how to shade the letters. I told you all about it my Marker Art post over the winter:
I love the Mother Teresa quote! I colored the heart with red copic markers in 3 shades before scanning and enlarging.
This one I scanned in without color and added the yellow/blue-green in Photoshop. Pretty cool because I can just change it if I don’t like the outcome. That is the biggest perk of digital art in my opinion!
I think next I will go the other way with these designs and shrink them down for creating a soldered pendant, or shrink film jewelry!
How do you use stamps in your artwork?
This is not a paid post! I just wanted to share Unity Stamps and Stephanie’s new line because I love them.
