I recently tried a technique called “water stamping” that was featured on the Splitcoast Stampers website and I just couldn’t stop at one (see Fall Thank You for my other creation with a water stamped background). I’ve had a lot of fun trying out different kinds and colors of inks with the technique. Below is a card that I created using the Hero Arts Zig Zag backgrounder stamp on a panel that I made with a purple ink gradient (sponged as well as direct to paper application of Stampin’ Up! and Distress Inks). I’m not certain of the maker of the sentiment stamp but it is a wood-mounted stamp that was likely on clearance at one of the local craft stores. I absolutely love using the dollar or bargain stamps whenever I see ones that I like. This one was appealing to me because of its size and the pretty script. Well, that’s it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
