This is my first layered stamp. You can't really see it here, but there are three layers. Here's what I learned about doing a layered stamp:
1. It takes a lot of PZ!
2. Most of the work is spent preparing the layers and carving. When I actually made the cards, it was a snap.
3. As long as the stamps have some common straight edges (the right edge and top in this case), it's pretty easy to line the stamps up. Mine was especially easy since it really didn't matter much if I was off a little. I only "missed" once out of 46 cards.
4. It's hard to find the colors of ink you envision, especially if you're looking for shades of the same color.
Thanks, 3 Blind Mice, for inspiring me to try this technique. I'm so glad I did.
