Mama Elephant- Water Blooms Stamp Set

You may recognize this stamp set.  We used it for our Spring Workshop in March.  So, if you attended the workshop, you already have this stamp.

A few days ago, we featured some watercolored cards using WPlus 9 stamps.  We thought this stamps set would be fun to use in a similar way.  You don't get a realistic looking image, but you still get a wonderful watercolored image.

Use the Tim Holtz Distress Markers to color your stamp.  Then, stamp it on some Mixed Media or watercolor paper.  Use a wet brush to activate the color and move it around for that watercolored look.  While the image is still wet, you can add a second color to the flowers.  Scribble your marker on a non stick craft mat, pick up the color with your brush, and touch the brush with the color to the wet areas.  The color should flow into the wet area creating a beautiful image.

Here are a few images of cards we created using this technique.

Here's the stamp set we used.  All the sentiments are from Mama Elephant's In My Heart set.
