Just Us Girls #245 - Technique


Today at Just Us Girls, Sue V has challenged us with a fun challenge - Water Color Stamping.  It's really easy, ink up your stamp, spritz it with water, and stamp with it.  I adore this technique and I loved my card for today.

 
I did it differently then the rest of the team did today.  I used my Hero Arts Dotted Background stamp and inked it up, spritzed it, and stamped my panel.  [You can see the water effect.]  I stamped my bird [retired] using My Favorite Things Black Licorice Hybrid ink, and water colored my bird with a paint brush.  [The ink did NOT smear. I wanted to share that, as I was thrilled!] - actually, I love my bird! It really is the first official "painted" image I have ever tried.  I was inspired by our Guest Designer, Shirley-Bee [thanks mf!] - she does amazing cards with images and paint!

 

Anyway, I am also entering this into a few challenges; [new to me] City Crafter #215; bird, Cupcake Inspiration #264; colors coral, pool and yellow, Simon Says Monday Challenge; paint.

You really need to join in the JUGS challenge this week!  If you have never tried this technique, you are in for a fabulous time, and if you have tried it before, you KNOW you will have a fabulous time!


Thanks for stopping by~
