Basic Stamp Coach Guide
Gather your materials - markers, scissors, block, sticky foam, plate, paper
Draw a shape and cut. If letters, draw on back paper and cut (will come out reversed, it's ok!)
Cut the shape to fit your block if needed.
Create a layer of color on your plate - this is your ink!
Ink your block by pressing into the color. You may need to do more than once.
You can use lots of course if you'd like - create "rainbow"blends
You can create multiple patterns on the same block!
Use your color palette wisely - try not to muddy the colors.
