Technique Twist Challenge 3! Waterstamping!! Such a fun and versatile technique! I have three samples for you today and will highlight some of the steps and tips along the way.
- Take a piece of Whisper White cardstock, and using sponges or daubers, apply ink all over the piece. The card above uses the colors Raspberry Ripple and Midnight Muse.
- The trick? darker color inks, light color/white cardstock
- The trick? Not too moist...not too damp! Just the right amount of water!
- Extra fun....I added smooch spray to my watered paper tower for just a little glimmer (although you cannot see it in the picture)
Stamps: Ex Libris, Lovely Romance
inks: Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals
cardstock: Naturals White, Whisper White, Midnight Muse
other: sprinkles, paper towel/water, chalk talk framelits, gold smooch spritz
My second sample uses the same steps as above, just used a different background stamp and more monochromatic colors. The layout is cased from the current catalog, page 62.
Stamps: En Francais, Papaya Collage
inks: Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals, Smoky Slate
cardstock: Smoky Slate, Whisper White, Raspberry Ripple
other: two way glue, dazzling diamonds, paper towel and water
My third sample is a bit more subtle, and shows the impact of applying the technique to light colors. In this sample, I used the Sunflower stamp, and had applied Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze to the whisper white cardstock. I also added champagne smooch spray to the water.
Stamps: Sunflower, Million and One
inks: Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso
cardstock: Whisper White, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze
other: Champagne Smooch Spray, Twine, paper towel and water
