Supplies:

Craft sheet

Distress inks

Embossing ink

Archival ink

Stamps

Ink blending tool with foam applicator

Tag or cardstock with smooth finish

Heat tool

Mini-mister

Water


Instructions:       

  1. Start with a craft sheet down on work table. Next, ink your blending tool with distress ink; start on the outside edges working in a circular motion.
  2. Continue inking using various distress inks until you are pleased with the results.     
Note: Tim’s suggestion; use inks with bold deep colors for best results.

  1. Ink your stamp with embossing ink.
  2. Mist your stamp with a fine mist water sprayer. This is where it might take a few tries to get just enough water on stamp.
  3. Press stamp down on your distress inked background. Lift off immediately dry the wet image using a heat tool. As the image dries your water stamping image appears.
  4. Finish using your choice of embellishments and stamps.  
Note: I replaced water with a mixture of Perfect Pearls powder [perfect pearl] mixed with water in a Mini-Mister as my example.
