|If you look closely, you can see the third color where the two inks overlap.|
1. Create a new square document with a white background.
2. Open a stamp image and drag it onto the new document. I’m using an image from the Versailles Digital Kit.
3. Resize the image so it fills the document; rotate it slightly.
4. Reduce the image opacity to 60%. This mimics the CS Ash ink nicely.
5. Duplicate the layer.
6. Command+Click (Mac OS) or CTRL+Click (Windows) on the new layer thumbnail in the Layers Palette. You’ll see marching ants around the image.
7. Use the Fill command to change the color; I used turquoise.
8. Press Command+D (Mac OS) or CTRL+D (Windows) to deselect the image.
9. Use your arrow keys to nudge the image a few pixels up and to the left. Because the opacity is reduced on the two image layers, a third color is created where they overlap - just like the paper version!
10. Merge the layers together and save your file.
To use the image to make cards . . .
1. Create a new document - I made mine 4.25x5.5".
2. Add a background. I chose a shade of turquoise to match the art.
3. Using the Marquee tool, grab a section of the newly created file and drag it onto your card.
4. Resize as needed.
5. Add a sentiment.
Wasn't that easy?
