One Saturday the Less is More Challenge Blog challenged us to doodle and I mixed my doodling with Thumb Printing, which has proved popular and I have been asked by a couple of people for some more examples.
Thumb Printing is very simple – you use your thumb as a rubber stamp. Firstly cover it with a dye ink by pressing it into an inkpad – but don’t let your thumb get too wet. I have been using the chalk inks as they give great coverage and you can still see the details.
Second press your thumb down firmly on a piece of cardstock – but as you would with a rubber stamp, don’t rock your thumb or you will lose the definition of the thumb print.
Once the ink is dry you can adapt it however you want to, I have doodled using a ekSucess Zig Marker and Promarker Pens:
Because they are small, you can play with them on scrap paper before going live with your design.
Thanks for looking – these examples are my 83rd Make of 2012
