Happy Mooncake Festival!

This layered stamp uses three colors. Here's how to recreate this print.

First you'll need to carve all the pieces for this design which has three pieces.

Inks I used: Soramame Oudo, Distress Ink Walnut Stain, Art Nic Sand Beige

How to stamp

Start with the background color (Soramame Oudo)

Still working on the background bottom half of the mooncake, use the Artnic Sand Beige for this part.

You'll need to align the stamp properly so that it fits the top part of the image. Take your time since it may take several tries before you get it right.

Finally, its time for the outline which uses walnut stain distress ink. Unlike the two inks, Distress Ink is dye based and it might seem a little runny so use sparingly.

I used the same colors on this stamp which has two pieces.

Hope you learned something new today. Happy Midautumn festival / Mooncake festival!  And to my buddies in Korea 추석 잘 지 내 새요 folks!
