Creative Scrapbooker's VIP Club

Hi everyone! It’s Kelly Klapstein here today to show you a fun way to make quick, pretty watercolour backgrounds for cards and tags. SUPPLIES:  Ranger Distress Ink, Kelly Creates Sentiment Stamps, Black permanent ink pad, Stamping block, Watercolor paper, large paintbrush, water, trimmer, adhesive, card stock Step 1: Rub your ink pad across the top of the watercolor paper.
Step 2: Add a lot of water to your large brush and ‘paint’ the ink downwards. Dip your brush into more water if needed. Step 3: Let dry completely Step 4: Stamp your sentiment. I chose black ink, but you could use different colors. Step 5: Adhere to a folded cardstock base. This simple technique has limitless watercolour combinations. Use one ink pad or two, or more! Stamp your sentiment for any special occasion or just inspirational words to brighten someone’s day. Breathe. Write. Relax.

    Tried this technique and loved it. So easy and the results are awesome. I used a sunflower stamp and just love the look.
