Last night I awarded myself some play time and got to grips with Stamping with Water. I also got out the spring and summer Distress ink collections to give them a whirl.
The water stamping has a quite subtle effect, this one was with one of Tim Holtz big damask stamps, which I then decided to turn into a little scene. The water effect is a bit clearer in close-up.
I've added some PaperArtsy text in the same colour Distress ink as the background and then stamped some Pink Paislee images on top of that. I think this one might make a nice notebook cover. I spritzed a little more water on this time which resulted in a good effect and a 2nd happy accident.................
It's a good idea to have a supply of white paper ready when you do this technique so that you can stamp out the wet stamp after it has been pressed onto the Distress Ink. The result was happy accident #2 and my favourite card of the day.
I've decorated the card with Lawn Fawn Stamps and a little off cut of Bright Side paper. For the mail box I've inked white card with Barn Door Distress Ink before stamping and cutting the image out.
I'm a little bit in love with Lawn Fawn at the minute and, seeing all the new products at CHA, I don't think that's going to end any time soon.
