Monday Montage #216 Water Stamping

Hello stampin' friends! Welcome back for the Monday Montage Blog Hop!  Today's card features a fun stamping technique called Water Stamping.  Have you ever tried water stamping before?  It's super simple and the results are awesome!  

For the card I created- here are the steps I followed.
  1. Using a Blending Brush- brush Coastal Cabana Ink all over a piece of Basic White Card Stock that measures 4" x 5-1/4".  Tip:  Choose a darker color for the image to show better and be generous with the ink.
  2. Place the colored Basic White layer onto the Stamparatus and center the Snow Crystal Stamp  (SNEAK PEEK!!!  COMING SOON!) in the center of the layer.  
  3. Close the Stamparatus to adhere the stamp to the plate.
  4. Using a Stampin' Spritzer filled with water- lightly spritz the Snow Crystal Stamp.  Tip: Don't over saturate the stamp too much or it will end up blotchy and unrecognizable when stamped.
  5. Stamp the water spritzed stamp onto the colored Basic White layer and let it air dry.
  6. Distress edges of the colored layer and adhere to a Basic White Card Base.
  7. Embellish as desired.
Things to note:  This technique is super easy and works great with all different stamps.  The image stamped with water will be slightly different than an image stamped with ink.  That's ok as it makes for a unique card!  Darker colors of ink work better than lighter colors.

Here's a close up of the water stamped snowflake from my card.  As you can see- the water stamped images aren't as clear as an image stamped with ink however they are still pretty!
