Just Us Girls Technique Challenge #245

It's my turn to host the challenge at Just Us Girls again and it's a technique challenge.  My challenge is to create a watercolor look with stamps.  Ink up your solid stamps with dye ink, mist the inked stamp and stamp onto cardstock.  This will give your image a soft, watercolored look.  For an even softer look, stamp off on a scrap piece of paper first, then stamp your cardstock.

Shirley-Bee is with us again this week as our June Guest Designer.

I inked up the the flowers from Gina K's Lean on Me with TH Distress Ink in Dried Marigold, misted with water, stamped off on some scrap paper then onto the cardstock. I really liked how this turned out with the variation in the color.  Repeated the same process for the stems with Distress Ink in  Forest Moss.  The background was a practice piece from the Online Watercolor Class that I really like how it turned out.  Stamped the sentiment, another Gina K, with Memento Espresso Truffle.

I had to do one more!

This one I added some more depth with some Twinkling H2Os.

Now it's your turn to play along with us for a chance to become our Guest Designer for the entire month of August.  Can't wait to see all of the fabulous creations that this technique inspires you to do.

Here are some links to the JUGS blog and design team
