See What is Pergamano & Parchment Craft Basics for more info!
It is possible to stamp on your parchment paper with your favorite stamp and save the tracing step by stamping the image. You are also able to thermal emboss and perform other rubber stamp techniques on the parchment paper. This has made the beautiful translucent qualities of the parchment very popular with rubber stamp enthusiasts!
I have used pigment ink successfully, as well as permanent inks. You need to let the inks dry, preferable overnight, before pressure embossing, perforating and painting the stamped image.
Stamp in the same manner you would on any paper. Stamps with simple, thin lines seem to work the best.
You dont want stamps with too much detail or a lot of shading in them. If you have a favorite stamp that you really want to use, but it has a lot of shading or detail in it, I would just stamp it on regular paper with a black stamp pad and trace it onto your parchment paper in the regular manner, leaving out the fine details.
Stamp your image in white ink to make a traditional pergamano card, or in brown or black to paint in. The small stamping cubes work well to carefully ink your stamp with different colours for beautiful effect.
Experiment with your stamps on the parchment paper, you will be pleased with the results!
