Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Friendship & Watercolor Stamping

Welcome to this month's Stamp of the Month Hop.  If you are coming from Lori Brown's Blog, you are on the right track!

I am in LOVE with this stamp set.  Can you see how nice they would be even without the sentiment which would be perfect as blank note cards making a very nice hostess gift?  Keep reading below to see the technique I used to create this classic and simple card.

Thanks for stopping by and I'd love it if you would follow me!  Keep on hopping over to Nancy Brown's Blog for more great ideas with this stamp set!!!

Technique Tutorial:

The two techniques I used are Random Stamping and Watercolor Stamping!  Assuming you know how to random stamp, I will only teach watercolor stamping here - if you want more info, please let me know.

Supplies needed:
Stamps & blocks
2 coordinating Inks (I used Bamboo & Crystal Blue)
Z1380 Spray Pen with water only
Neutral Cardstock

Start by inking up your stamp in a light or neutral color (bamboo).  Then, roll the edges of your stamp in a darker color (crystal blue).  Before stamping down onto your neutral cardstock, lightly mist water onto the inked up stamp using the Spray Pen.  Stamp onto the neutral cardstock & WAH-LAH!!!

It's that simple... and that beautiful.  Give it a try today!
