Snailed It and the Secret Stamp

Did you know that there is a secret stamp in the Snailed It set?  Yup, there is.  This stamp set is already so darn cute and versatile that this little stamp is just the cherry on top of an already full and cute set.  Check out this card and see if you can spot the secret stamp.


Did you figure it out?  Yup it is the polka dot.  Are you wondering where it was hiding?  


Do you see it?  It is the center of the thought bubble.  When I was putting my set away I realized there was this almost perfect circle that could be used instead of thrown away.   


I am always on the lookout for these kinds of bonus secret stamps. Now I hope you will be too.  Be sure to tell me when you find one.


Here I used it again.  I like a polka dotted background.  This one I stamped and then added textured with the Tasteful Textile 3D folder.  This time I colored the images using the Black Magic technique or at least a variation of it.  


What is the technique?  First, I stamped and heat embossed the image.  I colored in the image using the Chalk Marker.   If you don't have a chalk marker you can use some White Craft ink.  I like the marker because it is fast and easy to use.  Next I used Watercolor Pencils to color  the image.   The chalk marker allows you to color on dark cardstock.  


This is a fun and easy technique and who knew you could color on black cardstock?!

Thank you for stopping by and be on the lookout for more secret stamps!
