I'm calling today's inspiration a watercolour background tequnique ... not sure if it really is but that's what I'm calling it!! 🤣 I am of course using the fantastic Two-tone Flora stamps but in a slightly different way.
It all starts with a piece of watercolour paper, a spritzer filled with water, kitchen roll, stamps and ink. I started by liberally spritzing the watercolour paper with water. I also spritzed the reverse a little as it helps to stop the buckleing.
I then ink up the infill stamp, these are a solid image, and stamp them onto the wet paper. The ink will disperse and spread but don't panic it'll all work out right in the end promise!
I used 3 different sizes of stamps and 3 different colours of ink. If the colours don't disperse then spritz with more water . This is how mine looked at this stage.
Top tip here is to let it dry, if you're inpatient like me a heat tool is very helpful 😉, and then spritz again any parts that you feel need more ink movement/ coverage . Also in the picture you can see that I work on kitchen roll/ paper this helps mop up the excess mess really easily 😅
The next step is to take the corresponding highlight stamps and stamp with the same ink over where the infill stamps were stamped. Because the paper is now dry the stamps and ink act as normal.
This technique could work with so many stamps and is a great way to extend your stash!
Here's the finished card...
