Default Paper Lantern Technique

The Paper Lantern Technique features one of the neglected tools in our stamping arsenal -- the paper crimper. This technique was created by my (former) Stampin' Up upline and friend, Jan Tinklenberg.

Simply:
- Stamp your image anyway you desire.
- Run the image through the paper crimper.
- Lightly pat the raised folds on a contrasting ink pad.

The waterlily stamp is from OnyxXpressions. The background is Krylon "Make It Stone" sprayed on black cardstock.

We'd love to see what you make using the Paper Lantern Technique.

I don't have the cards any more, but last year, I used this technique to make paper lanterns for a Chinese New Year's card but running card stock through the crimper and punching out circles.

This technique would be great for a Chinese New year's card! Thanks for commenting, Ingrid.

This ATC is for the Year of Rabbit swap. Don't look if you want to be surprised.
For variety, I only highlighted the ridges in some areas.

I have an idea for this, so I just need to carve out some stamping time after work tonight. :-) Crossing my fingers that this idea turns out the way I see it in my head. :-)

Here is a comparison of different color combos but with the same stamps and layout:

1) on grey paper, images in black and rubbed with white
2) on white paper, images in black and rubbed with a brownish red ink
3) on white paper, images in colored inks and rubbed with black ink
