Hello fellow stampers! It's Beth Norman here with a Distressed Watercolor tutorial for you. I love the soft look of this technique, and it goes so well with the Poppies, Large that I used for my background. The sentiment was embossed in white over top of paper that was sponged in the Distress Inks that I used for the background. Always Hope is an August release, and you can purchase it at 15% off, along with all August release stamps until August 8th.
Supplies: Rubberstamp with large open areas, Distress Inks, embossing buddy, white embossing powder, heat gun, VersaMark, paint brush, watercolor paper, small paint brush, non stick mat
On the smooth side of the watercolor paper, rub your embossing buddy over the entire surface
Stamp out your image onto the watercolor paper
Use your heat gun to emboss the image
Press your Distress Inks onto your non stick mat and gently sprtiz with water
Dip your finger into the lightest colour of distress ink and, in a pouncing motion, apply color to your watercolor paper
Continue to add your desired colours to the images as desired
My stamp only required a variety of reds and pinks. You can use a wide variety of colours on your image.
REMEMBER, ALL AUGUST RELEASE STAMPS ARE 15% OFF UNTIL AUGUST 8TH
