Tip Tuesday #2 - Shadow Stamping

This is a nifty little trick I use to create depth on my stamped images without too much trouble.

What I did was ink up the sentiment with black ink and stamp it on the card stock and without re-inking I shift the stamp just slightly and re-stamp. The second generation stamp leave the perfect shadow!! I just love this affect, its so simple and you don't waste any ink!!!

Here is a little Thank You Card I made and did the "Thank You" using the Shadow Stamping technique.
