Step 1: Choose your desired Stamp, Inks, and Thickers. I also use my Tim Holtz non stick craft sheet to stamp on. Remove the word/words you wish to alter and place them on your work surface.
Step 2: Use Staz-On Ink in desired color, ink up your stamp. Apply ink to each letter individually. For a bold imprint apply pressure to thicker using your stamp. For a softer stamped image apply slight pressure.
Step 3: If you like this bold look then go with it. However, if you would like to tone it down a little. Then break out the distress inks. Use your distress ink applicator, if you don't have one you can use a soft rag, or Q-tip. I decided to use two different ink colors and in a circular motion apply ink onto letter. Do this with both inks or just one if you choose. Continue until you have the desired look.
Here is my complete project using my altered thickers. I hope you give it a try and remember to have lots of fun.
