March Changing of the Stamp Challenge.

This is a challenge to take an existing stamp and change it in some way and re-use it. I recently told a Club Posh member I thought it was magic when I saw someone put scotch tape over a portion of their stamp that they did NOT want to stamp, ink up the stamp, remove the tape and stamp the image thus getting a stamped image minus the part you didn't want. Give it a try.
It makes you look at your stamps in a new way.
You can see the original image on the left. I taped off the hat part on the image on the right and filled it in to make a beret. Judikins hearts stamped in the background on the right image.

What a great idea for a challenge, Denise! TY! I'm definitely up for this one & like your chapeau-changing kitty.

It's no secret that I enjoy masking in all forms & I came up with a fairly easy way to do multiples for this stamp-altering technique. May I share?

!. Find the stamp image you want to play with (T's kitty is a great one)

2. Stamp the image several times on plain white paper (gives you lots to play with)

3. Clean the stamp before proceeding further.

4. Cut the image into parts & keep track of those parts.

Now you are ready to play with 'load-masking'.

1. Cover the area you dont want with a mask.

2. Ink the stamp.

3. Remove the mask. (Can't tell you how often I forgot to do this)

4. Stamp the image.

Voila! You have an 'altered' image without having to resort to fussy cutting & layering.

I'm sure lots of my fellow Poshies have their own ways of playing with the technique of 'altering-when-loading' & would love to hear & see them.

Off to find some stamps so I can get started on my submission.

One last tip (for now)? Clean your stamp frequently. Otherwise you can get a 'ghost' showing up when you stamp.

Good tips Daniel. Can't tell you how may times I have gotten the ghost image. I would be impatient and stamp before the cleaning of the stamp was good and dry.

Let me make sure I understand what you are saying above. You will have to fussy cut the image when you are cutting into parts and making masks....right? Or have I missed something here?

Thanks for sharing your tips. More techniques and tips always appreciated.

You got it, Denise. You do have to cut out (& cut apart) the stamped image with this mask-loading technique.

I finished a piece yesterday & will share it it soon as possible. One of the stamps had to mask-loaded 3 times for the look. Having the mask readymade saved me extra work.

Good timing, TerriO! Just got uploadable pix.

I used 2 different stamps in the load-masking technique I had shared. For the bunny lady I masked off her legs & stamped her first.

I masked off the bear from the eggs & did it three times to create a heap of eggs for mama rabbit to sit on.

Used regular masking as needed--as with the mitred border of lace. Left it purely B&W so you can see the images clearly & to let my 'photographer' have the fun of coloring.

Great job Daniel. Had to look at it several times to see all of the masking techniques you spoke about. Isn't it fun to look at your stamps in a new way. I hope we can see it after it is colored also. Thanks for taking part in the challenge.

Yes it is, Denise. Case in point. I've never been really fond of the stamp with the bear, but (using 'mask-loading') I can now see using him in other ways. I can mask off the eggs & have just the bear. Then he can 'hold' lots of different items. Neat. Thanks for the challenge.

You could have made the cats hat green and clover instead of hearts and had a St. Patty day card. Just a thought.

I do use tape to mask parts of stamps, mostly when I only want part of the stamp.

I did do one that I changed it up, but I cannt find the scans. It was a snowman with twig arms sticking out. And I brought them in and made him holding a birthday cake. I stamped him many times, cut apart, positioned till I got what I wanted. Only then masked him and stamped.
