This week's tutorial over on Splitcoast is a fun review of how to create a simple drop shadow - look for lots of tips for color choices and for manual stamping and stamping with a positioner!
I chose to work with a new set from Impression Obsession - Peggy Jo Ackley has an adorable new line of stamps and coordinating dies, and they have been so fun to play with! This one is called Sew Happy. I stamped the dress form on a white "Swatch" from Inchie Arts using Memento ink... my first impression was lined up at the 2-1/4" mark along the top of my MISTI. For the second impression I also used Memento ink (Desert Sand?), moving the matboard down slightly and over to the right about 1/4".
I colored in the shadow outside the original outline with a matching Copic marker, then colored in the first image.
So the dress form didn't look like it was floating, I added some connecting lines from the feet back to the feet of the shadow.
I had watercolored the background panel the other day - it's just done with some of the smaller stamps, stamped randomly on some Canva-Paper.
Hope our tutorial gives you some ideas for shadow stamping!
