Faux Water Painting

There was a lovely card in the Summer Mini Catalogue featuring the Love and Care stamp set, I made the card using other stamps, but using the same layout and colours. I love what a useful resource the Catalogue and Ideas Book & mini catalogues that Stampin' Up! are and never throw them out after you can no longer purchase from them.

Faux water painting is such a fun technique, just ink, hold the spritz bottle filled with water about 20-25cm from the stamp and spritz the stamp with water spray, then stamp as normal, it gives a lovely and unique image every time. Isn't the Medallion stamp in Crumb Cake on the background just lovely as well, almost like a watermark.

Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake
Card Stock: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie DSP (retired)
