Watercolor stamping is our technique challenge for this week and it is a very simple technique - my favorite kind! Simply ink your stamp with dye or distress ink, then mist the stamp with some water and stamp it onto card stock. Works fabulously well with flower images, and you all know how much I love flowers!
I went on the CAS side, and pulled out one of my all time favorite Stampin' Up sets - Terrific Tulips. Tulips are my favorite flower so this set will never be departing my possession LOL! Spritzed each stamp with water before stamping it on my card stock for each of the two step stamps. At first glance it may not seem any different from a cleaning stamped image, but it definitely is a softer image.
Used PTI's Linen texture plate for a touch of contrast on the white panel (doesn't really show in the photo) and then added a vellum butterfly and sentiment panel. A few pearls finished things off nicely.
The rest of the JUGS team along with our June Guest Designer, Shirley-Bee, have some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so head on over to the Just Us Girls blog and check out what they've created. Simply create a card using the sketch and link it up to the JUGS blog for a chance to be chosen as the Chic of the Week. Remember, if you are chosen as Chic of the Week, you could be invited to be a Guest Designer.
Wishing you a fabulous weekend!
