Watercolour Stamping

As you may be able to tell I love watercolouring with my stamps; either sprintzing water onto my inked stamp, adding water to a stamped image or using my inks to colour an image, and I just couldn’t let this card onto the blog without a very short video!

Isn’t this card just so pretty!

I do have a bit of a top tip for using that sentiment; use the top edge of the stamp to ensure your stamp is stamped straight, if you line the top edge of the stamp up with the top of you block when positioning, you can then line the block up with your card stock to ensure your sentiment is straight.

Stampin' Up! UK butterfly basics video tutorialHow to:

Cut your sheet of Early Espresso card stock in half, and fold in half to create your card base. Measure the front or your card and cut a piece of Stampin’ Up! watercolour paper to half a centimetre (or 1/4″) shorter and narrower

Ink the fern stamp up with Sahara Sand ink and stamp 3 times in the bottom right hand corner of your watercolour paper.

Ink you flower stamp up with Rich Razzleberry, and mist with water, the amount of water you mist the more the ink will move, causing the two different effects as seen above, stamp over the top of the ferns. Allow this to dry, either naturally or with the assistance of a heat tool.

Ink the postage label in Early Espresso and stamp three times around the flowers.

Stamp the sentiment in the bottom left using Early Espresso.

Mount the watercolour paper to the front or your card base using Fast Fuse adhesive.
