With all that taken care of, let's get to it! We've got another fabulous challenge for you this month at Technique Time Tuesday--it's called WATER STAMPING!!!  We cannot wait to see what amazing creations you create with this tutorial!

PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOUR CREATION USES OUR TUTORIAL OR YOUR ENTRY WILL BE DELETED.  If you need to review the rules, please consult the tab up top!  Now let's get started!


Water Stamping Technique
Materials Needed
Not all materials used to complete card pictured.
*White cardstock
*Blending tool or sponges
*Desired inks
*Bold background or solid image stamps
*Paper towel
*Plate/lid/anything to keep your water pad on


"How To"
 1. Ink up your paper using either a sponge or blending tool.  I just recently purchased a blending tool and I can tell you that it is definitely a fabulous investment!  Make sure to start with the lightest color first and then work your way up to the darkest.

2. Create your water ink pad by placing your paper towel into some sort of container and adding water.  Get it soaked, but not dripping.  You don't want water splashing when you wet your stamp, but there needs to be quite a bit of water for this to work.  Stamp your image onto the colored panel.  The image will become more defined as the water dries.

3. If you want to try a little variation, add some glimmer mist into your water and stamp with that, too.  It creates a really nice shine!

4. You've got your completed panel.

5. Add it to your project.

Really enjoyed this challenge - again! Lovely inspiration from the DT.

Is it too late to collect my digis for last months win? I have been without internet for a while (posted on my blog) and I'm still trying to catch up - I will fully understand if it's too late.
