I had the best time creating these collage cards using a variety of stamps, papers and water based inks. Although I think I was a little too experimental with the colours on this first card, it was still lots of fun to throw around different inks and water just to see what happened. I thoroughly recommend having a go!
You'll need a piece of watercolour paper, a water pen, spritzing bottle filled with clean water, a collection of stamps, water soluble ink and a dark coloured oil based ink (not shown).
Start by stamping the background with the lightest coloured inks. Do some spritzing or use the water pen if desired.
Now just add stamps!
I used a black, oil based ink for the script and sentiment stamps so it wouldn't react with the water already on the cardstock. I used a permanent ink pen to draw a small double lined border to frame my image, which I created by stamping on a clean sheet of cardstock and colouring with one of the inks already used in the background.
The background for these two cards was created in the same way, except that I used slightly different colours.
