Rock and Roll is here to stay ;)

No, I am not talking about the type of music, but the lasting memories you leave in your albums for years to come.  Don't just stamp your image, but allow it to really pop of the page. 

Step 1:  Ink your image in a base color. (I used Cranberry red.)
Step 2: Take the block and gently "rock" the stamp in a circular motion in a darker color (cocoa or black).
Step 3: Breath on the stamp and press to your paper. 
Step 4: Cut the image out and adhere to your layout using 3D foam squares or my favorite substitute, folded up scraps.
For best results use the correct block size as to not get access ink on the block, if you don't have the right block size make sure you put the image closest to a corner of the block to make the rocking easier.
