How do I create the effect of motion?

Streaking/Trailing

Use this technique to create the illusion of motion. Ink up your stamp, stamp onto your paper, and, without lifting the stamp move your image in the direction OPPOSITE the direction your want your image to appear to be moving in. When you lift your stamp, you will discover that the ink has left a trail behind the image. This trailing effect is a common technique for creating motion in drawing, cartooning, etc., and now you can create this effect with your stamp!
