Supplies on all 3 Cards:
Stamps: JustRite Papercraft® CL-02123 Celtic Lattice Background Stamp
Paper: Ranger Watercolor Paper (smooth side)
Markers: Ranger Distress Markers-Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Broken China, Faded Jeans
Start coloring the background stamp with the Distress Markers. I started with Tumbled Glass and then Peacock Feathers. Next I added Broken China and finished with Faded Jeans. Once the entire stamp is colored lightly mist with water. Mist a piece of watercolor paper and place on top of the background stamp.
Tip: Be sure to use the smooth side of the watercolor paper when stamping.
Mist the stamp and watercolor paper again. Stamp and see the second result.Now mist the stamp and watercolor paper for a third time and stamp again. I just loved all three results!
I used the first generation stamped image to create this card.
