Generally I will ink the entire stamp in the lightest ink first (in this example Crumb Cake), then using a sponge dauber apply the next darkest ink directly to the stamp (Always Artichoke) around the leaves in the middle area of the medallion. The next step would be to use another sponge dauber and apply the darkest ink around the outside edge and sporadically over the other colors (Early Espresso).
Thanks again for your thoughtfulness to leave comments- you have truly made me feel very honored and blessed!
Even though we may not ever have a chance to meet in person, I consider all of you my new "stamping" friends! Have a great weekend and God Bless!
