Water Stamping

Hello Everybody!

There's a new challenge at Technique Time Tuesday and I'm hosting it!  I picked out water stamping because it seems like a way to stretch you stamps.  You can find the instructions and the rest of the DT's projects here.

Here's my card.  I used the water stamping for my flowers.

Here you can see the stamp that I used.  I used Tim Holtz's Distress Inks for my flowers.  I die cut them first.  This is the Tim Holtz tattered flowers die.  Then I put the Dusty Concord on the flower using an applicator.  I dipped the stamp in the "water pad" and stamped my flower.  I did use a heat gun to speed up the drying.
Don't you just love the result?

Here are all of the flowers that I made.  I used a numbers stamp on the red flower.  On the green flower I applied Mustard Seed DI first and heat set it.  Then I put Broken China over it so these two colors made this pretty green.  I wanted to see if yellow would show through instead of white (the cardstock).  I am not really sure but this flower turned out great.

 Here is a close up of my flowers put together.  The pink flower is using a distress stain instead.  I was experimenting.  It worked a little bit.

Thank you for stopping by.  There is an exciting change with Technique Time Tuesday.  Usually the winner gets digital sentiments as the prize.  Starting this month we are going to give away different prizes.  Here is this month's prize:

A 6x6 paper pack from Pink Paislee (London Market), A Distress Ink-Worn Lipstick, and a Wood-Mounted Thank you Stamp.  How exciting!  We can't wait to see your creations!

Until next time my friends, what stamps will you be using?
