Our 3-D Shading Stamps do all the work for you in one press of the stamp. Created by our revolutionary pixel technology, it’s designed to bring additional image depth and multiple shades. The beauty and variation of these images will excite your passion for stamping all over again! This cling foam (EVA) rubber stamp is designed to be used with an acrylic block.




  1. Cut paper as noted and score card base.
  2. Ink Cactus 3D Shading Stamps with black ink and stamp on mixed media paper.
  3. Lightly color image with watercolor pencils and blend with water brush. Note that the shading in the stamp helps show where your light source and shading is! Let dry.
