    I used fabric paint for stamping. Take something with a plain surface to pour paint on it. Now, place the cardboard shape stamp on the paint and make sure every stripe is covered with paint or you can also use a paint brush to cover the stripes with paint. Now start stamping! You can rotate some shapes (triangle, circle, square) to create a checked pattern. Enjoy!
