I love color and I love stamping, so this technique combines the two! Basically, you use a stamp to add ink to your paper, then maneuver the ink using a Water Painter. If you plan ahead, you can create beautiful colors and combinations.
This is the card I created during my video. The shapes are in the Framed Occasions stamp set. I created the background using an image from Season of Chic.
Be sure to let your panel dry completely before you stamp your focal image on it! Then let your personal style dictate how you use the panel.
Then I used the detailed flower stamp from Petal Park to create some flowers in Mango Melody. For interest, I punched some without stamping the flower details.
- use it as a layer, as I have in most of these samples
- die cut it
- use a punch on it
- layer it under or on top of another panel
- colors of ink
- stamps to get the ink onto the paper
- paper (watercolor paper for more blending, thinner paper for punch/die cutting)
