Ink up Nathan with the Onyx Black Versafine, and stamp just off the bottom, and right hand edges, of your stamped background.

Pop some of the Izink Pigments on to a glass or craft mat. Add a little water, and paint your stamped image. I used the Avalanche to lighten the other 2 colours, creating light and shade to my artwork.
