Water Stamping

After my thoughts on my previous post, I wanted to do something different today. Something quick, easy, but with a pretty effect. So I tried some water stamping. I've done this before years ago, but only with background stamps, and a different inking technique. I just love how this turned out, a card I will keep! ;)

So my inking technique is totally different than anything I've tried before, nothing new I'm sure, but it's pretty cool! Here is a pic of the supplies I've used:

The gorgeous stamp is a big one from the April S.M.A.K. kit from Unity. I inked it with 3 colors using the foam blender tool. This is the new-to-me part. I inked just the edge of the foam tool and pounced the ink onto the stamp. Once I was done, I spritzed the stamp with water, then stamped it onto my prepared watercolor paper. 

I cut 3 strips and adhered them to another piece for my stamping surface. I'm following a sketch for the Unity Facebook challenge. I didn't want a large sentiment, so I used a small one from the Unity Plenty of Pandas set.

So, a happy stamping day for me today, and that's a good thing!!
Thanks so much for visiting!!
