Water Stamped GrassesPosted: August 29, 2013 Filed under: Aspire, CAS, Watercolour | Tags: CAS, Penny Black stamps, Tsukineko Memento inks 14 Comments
After stamping the Queen Anne’s lace with water I tried the technique again with a different stamp. I masked a rectangle then used ink to sponge the background with green, yellow and orange tones. I then painted water onto my stamp and stamped several times along the panel. You can see a clear water stamped impression on the left hand side but the others are less obvious. To finish I inked the same grass stamp in green and orange and stamped it several times before adding the sentiment
The card and the panel are cut from 140lb weight water colour paper.
By the way if you are looking for One Layer Wednesday this week Karen is hosting a Silhouette challenge which I hope to play along with soon.

I love the colors used and the technique. Thank you for giving the paper and weight used, most of the time they are not given. Nice job.

So gorgeous. Thanks for sharing the technique.
That is so beautiful, Heather. What a great technique. Thanks for sharing!
Very pretty and relaxing. Love it.
Your usual gorgeous sponged card, and I love that water technique. Looks very autumn-ish, and as always, thanks for giving the how-to. TFS
This is beautiful, Heather! The colours are perfect for the images.
Lovely card Heather!!!!! Will have to give it a try too….TFS!
Amazing stamping, wonderful effect!
Gorgeous card, beautiful sponging and (water)stamping! Nice colors too!
I love the depth created by that technique. The colours make it a bright and cheerful card.
I adore the colours you have used and the way you have blended them so well without getting a muddied look….I always seem to end up muddied…or is it muddled?…I can’t remember! The water stamping creates such a soft 3D effect…..it’s amazing! Thank you for sharing your beautiful creations and your techniques!
I love the way you did this. The colors and depth are amazing!
This card would be a real joy to receive. The colors are so vibrant and cheery. Beautiful job!
