Stamping with Gesso and triple layer stamping

Hi dear blogger friends!
 Merry Christmas to all of you  hope you all are having a great time..
today I am sharing with you all a technique of stamping...which uses gesso.. in all these cards I used gesso to stamp...and also used the triple layer stamping...gesso works better with background stamps but since I do not possess any.. I did it with what I had..
Used the Micia wood mounted butterfly stamp and gesso for stamping. The textured look of the image is lovely. Filled in the inside with black colour, liquid glitter and glossy accents. Did the stamping in the triple layer stamping technique.

For this card I mixes gesso with a little dye ink and then stamped using triple layer stamping technique

here I used the hero arts stamps and gesso  and triple layer stamping again

 Hope you liked my experiment. I do not have any embossing products and so I wanted to try something that totally bypasses it  since most of the methods involve embossing somehow or the other .I was really happy after seeing the results. The stamped image is so looks beautiful in real..
