Have you seen the new Touches of Texture Stamp Set (item 143251)? It’s filled with several beautiful line art stamps as well as different filler and texture stamps. I thought it would be fun to use a watercolor stamping technique and some simple layering to make a set of note cards and a coordinating gift bag to share with you today.
I started with the Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (item 131527). I stamped the splatter texture stamp in Crushed Curry ink (item 131173). Then I added the striped tape from the Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape (Item 141635). I also added a piece of Crushed Curry Cardstock (item 131199) that I cut with the washi tape die shape from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies (item 137547) and adhered it above the tape. Next, I added a few wrapped rounds of the Basic Black Metallic Thread (item 141695).
For the watercolor stamping technique, follow the pictured steps below.
All of the greetings from the cards are images from the Love & Affection Stamp Set (item 141545) stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink (item 132708). I used Flirty Flamingo ink (item 141397) for the linen texture stamp, Flirty Flamingo Cardstock (item 141416) for the die cut, and the floral tape from the Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape. The ink colors I used here to stamp on the watercolor piece were Flirty Flamingo ink and Cucumber Crush ink (item 138324).
Well, I hope you enjoyed these samples and that you give the “watercolor stamping” technique a try. It’s perfect to add texture, color, and interest to your next stamping project!
