Thursday Technique

Good evening all :) Hope you all have had a wonderful week so far. Its been really hot here until today, the humidity has gone bye,bye and its going to be gorgeous here this weekend. OK enough about the weather its technique time :) The technique is water coloring without a paint brushes. This is what you need:
Watercolor paper
Stamp (want one that has little detail)
Water mister w/water in it
Heat gun

Step 1: Color stamp with markers.

Step 2: Mist stamp with water, not a lot maybe 2 squirts of water
Step 3: Stamp on water color paper, then heat set.

Optional: You can stamp again if you want without recoloring or misting stamp again.

Step 4: Finish card. In my card I did the optional step. I stamped it 3 times without recoloring or remisting.

Its that easy :) Hope you have fun with this technique. I will post later this evening with pictures of my recent Stampin' Up!© order and a pic of some of the other cards, and bags I have made and stamped this week. So until my next rambling :)
