Now Playing: ink - spritz - stamp
Topic: Some Backlog
This is a card I make to try out a technique from Tim Holtz's first DVD, "An Altered Journey".
A rubber stamp is inked with a variety of colors of water-based dye inks. Have your cardstock and heat gun at the ready. Use a sprayer to liberally spritz the stamp and immediately impress on the paper. Hit it with the heat gun to set the colors. You can make a few impressions before reinking the stamp.
I really like this technique with leaves, florals and the like that have 'loose' design. They lend themselves well to this look of handpainted watercolors.
