Add dimension to solid images with two colors of ink by stamping your image in a solid color and rolling its edges in a contrasting hue. Apply lighter ink to stamp, then roll edges of inked stamp in darker ink, then press inked stamp on paper. Always use the lightest colored ink first to avoid getting dark ink on your light ink pad. In this segment we will show you how to create the banner and title.

 1. To begin use the Rock & Roll technique to create banner and title:
*   The Boutique Alphabet is stamped in Hollyhock Inks and then Rock & Rolled in Cocoa Inks.
*   Banner triangles are stamped in Sunny Yellow Inks and then Rock & Rolled (second generation) in Hollyhock Exclusive Inks.
*   All are stamped on White Daisy Cardstock.
2. Cut out using Microtip Scissors.
3. Edge distress banner triangles.  Adhere to layout.  Hand stitch the top of   the banner using embroidery floss if desired.
4.  Sew buttons to Just Blooms flowers. Attach to the banner with Mini Glue Dots.
