Water Stamping

Welcome to Technique Tuesday!!
By Judy Cantrell

Craft sheet
Distress inks
Embossing ink
Archival ink
Ink blending tool with foam applicator
Tag or cardstock with smooth finish
Heat tool

  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.
