Who knew watercolor stamping could be so easy to do? For this card, you need to use watercolor paper. Everyone in the class is given an extra piece of watercolor paper to practice with first. I had a slight ulterior motive in doing this class. You see, this process requires you to ink the stamp and spritz with water, then stamp onto your card. Then you have to clean the stamp before repeating these steps. I am hoping to get those who attend class more used to cleaning the stamps each time they use them.
The stamps in this finished card are from the Botanical Layers set and the Quiet Meadow set. Each stamp is inked with Soft Succulent ink before being misted with water to stamp onto watercolor card.
After inking the stamps up with Soft Succulent, we use a dauber to pick up some darker Evening Evergreen ink to add to the stamp before misting and stamping onto our card. This further enhances the watercolor look. Some may call this faux water coloring because you are not using a brush. That is why I call this watercolor stamping.
I hope you will try this fun and easy technique of watercolor stamping for achieving a water color look to your cards. FYI, the leaf stamp in this card is from the Botanical Layers stamp set, which is currently available at my online store. You can find other cards made with this stamp set here.
