Hello, it’s Gaylynn here with another installment of my Watercolor Wednesday series. Today, I am sharing a water stamping technique to create an amazing background pattern.
For today’s project, I created a background for this handmade card using water stamping. It really is an easy and fun way to stamp with water.
Sentiment: You are important.
Unity Stamp Co. stamp kit used:
You Are Important by Donna Downey
I made a video tutorial for this water stamping card. It includes instructions along the way throughout the video, however, a written process follows below.
Water Stamping and Distress Oxide Ink
By Gaylynn Martling for Unity’s Watercolor Wednesday
(See also the video tutorial for this project.)
To begin, apply distress oxide ink to watercolor paper. I used two colors, generously.
Mist your stamp with water. Gently shake off puddles. I used a Ranger mini mister to spray.
Lay the inked paper over the stamp and gently press down. Remove the paper.
Gently blot puddles and then heat set. Repeat the process on another section, optional.
Finally, assemble the card.
Here is another look at my card.
