Innies and Outies

Copper and white clay antiqued with Prussian blue acrylic.

Dragon Parts and Sprout and Dot rubber stamps.
One of the things I like to do with stamps is to make an impression of the stamp to use as a reverse or outie stamp. Here you can see the difference in the result. The two top circle were made with the original stamp – innies, and the two shapes at the bottoms were made by using an impression of the original stamp to make the impression on the two bottom shawl pin ( not actual pins shown – what do you call the round part of a shawl pin?).
It is such and easy thing to do but it sounds complicated when I try to write it down. This is to simple to make a tutorial out of, isn’t it? Try it you will be how different the innies and outies can look.

Such a simple and "obvious" concept, isn't it, Joan? But only now that you have pointed it out LOL. I just love your dragon stamp, BTW. So far just playing around with it, though, other projects making demands.

It kind of doubles the use of the stamp. Neat.
