Technique Lovers Challenge - Wet Paper Stamping

Hello's my turn to host the Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast this week and my challenge is to do Wet Paper Stamping!! I found this wonderful technique on my friend Kathy's blog, Lucky Stamper...she made a gorgeous fall card and added some flower soft to the trees!!
I wet my watercolor paper with a wet paper towel...

The tree from Flourishes Flourished Christmas was stamped with Baja Breeze onto the wet watercolor paper....clear stamps work best for me because I could see placement for the top stamping.

the ink will bleed out a bit ....which is a good thing!!!
dry with a heat tool and then....

stamp over the top of the Baja Breeze tree with a darker color...I used Old Olive

I love how the Baja Breeze layer bled out to create a glow behind the Old Olive tree....tooo cool!!!

I used the same technique on the sentiment and cutout the images with a Nestabilities. Sewing was done around the background layer along with some distressing. The scallop was cutout with a Spellbinders scallop die and the wrinkled seam binding, button, twine, and the gold holly and sprig sticker from Martha Stewart finishes it off.
Stamps: Flourished Christmas from Flourishes
Paper: Watercolor Paper, Riding hood Red, Old Olive, Tinsel dp by Memory Box
Ink: Old Olive, Baja Breeze
Accessories: Wrinkled Seam Binding, Button, Twine, Martha Stewart Sticker, Neatabilities, Spellbinder's Scallop Border Die, sewing Machine

I just had to make another sample...I LOOOVE this technique!!! For this card I wet my watercolor paper, stamped the sentiment with Lavender Lace, and dried it with the heat tool.

Old Olive was used to stamp over the Lavender Lace image.

Then I wet the paper around the sentiment, stamped several snowflakes with Lavender Lace, Certainly Celery, Basful Blue, and dried it again.

Old Olive, Bordering Blue, and Elegant Eggplant were the darker colores used to stamp over the snowflakes. I did go back and move a little ink with an aqua pen to get the Old Olive to bleed just a little.

The image was cutout with a Nestabilitits, layered on Lavender Lace with piercing around the edges. A silver pearl was added to one of the snowflakes and the ribbon, snowflakes, button, and silver cording were the finishing touches.
Stamps: Flourishes
Paper: White, Lavender Lace, Bo Bunny dp called A Gift of Love
Ink: Bashful Blue, Bordering Blue, Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Lavender Lace, Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: Ribbon, Silver Pearl, Button, Silver Cording, Felt Snowflakes from Hero Arts, Nestabilities

Thanks for stopping get out that watercolor paper and create something FABULOUS!!! If you upload to Splitcoast use the keywords TLC294...I would love to see what you make!!!

Traci S. said...

Oh, WoW! This may be one of my favorite techniques yet!

It reminds me of when I was a child, we would wet paper...and add color with water colors and make rainbows...and some times just dotted paper. Today we would call that design paper! LOL

Thank you so much for sharing all of your beautiful examples. I thought that they would have made wonderful cards at each of the stages that you showed!


He IS Able!

Some tips i have often told men and women is that while looking for a good internet electronics store, there are a few factors that you have to take into account.
First and foremost, you should really make sure
to look for a reputable and in addition, reliable shop that has enjoyed great opinions and scores from
other consumers and business sector analysts.
This will ensure you are dealing with a well-known
store to provide good support and help to their patrons.
Many thanks sharing your ideas on this website.

I've been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It�s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

I believe that a property foreclosures can have a
significant effect on the debtor's life. Real estate foreclosures can have a 8 to ten years negative affect on a borrower's credit report.

The borrower who has applied for a mortgage or any loans for example, knows that the particular worse credit rating
is actually, the more tricky it is to acquire a decent financial loan.

In addition, it could affect any borrower's chance to find a quality place to lease or rent, if that gets the alternative homes solution. Great blog post.

Just about all of what you mention happens to be supprisingly accurate and that makes me
ponder the reason why I had not looked at this
with this light previously. This particular article really did
switch the light on for me as far as this particular issue goes.
But there is one issue I am not really too cozy
with and while I try to reconcile that with the core theme of
your position, permit me ob just what all the rest of
the readers have to say.Nicely done.
