Now you have the basics of stamping, you can do generation stamping. This is a really simple technique that I thought I would show you for this tutorial Tuesday. You simply ink your stamp up and stamp as normal. Then comes the generation bit ... instead of re-inking your stamp, you print it again for a 2nd generation and again for a 3rd generation. The impression fades as the generations go on, as shown in the photo above. This can create nice depth and softness for backgrounds like the one I created below.
