Faux Watercolour

Create a lovely faux watercolour effect by spritzing water on the card stock and the inked stamp to blur the image when stamped.

Let it dry, smooth the card stock and stamp another image over it.

Use a heat tool to speed up the drying time if you like.
-spritz water lightly onto the card stock mat
-ink a stamp and spritz with water
-stamp 3 or 4 times on the wet card stock without re-inking
-gently dab with a tissue if there is too much water
-spritz lightly with more water if the card stock is too dry
-let the images blur and dry
-smooth the card stock with your hands or gently press with an warm iron between sheets of plain paper to flatten
-stamp the 2-step flowers and stem over the blurred images
