Wetlands has such wonderful images for all sorts of background techniques. I've done some brayering with the sand piper images in the past, and last month for the Watercolor Wonder class, we used the watercolor wash technique.
Stamps: Wetlands; Paper: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Modern Medley DSP, Watercolor paper; Ink: Black Stazon, Crisp Cantaloupe, Soft Sky, Pool Party, Marina Mist, Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo, Crushed Curry, Crumb Cake reinkers; Accessories: Linen thread, White gel pen, Aquapainter, Stampin' Spritzer.
I changed up and remade a past card, although I am not sure I shared it back then. It uses the Bordered Sentiment technique.
- To guarantee no ink smearing, use Black Stazon ink and give a moment to dry between stamp images.
- Stamp-a-ma-jig is a must!
- Temporarily adhere your panel to grid paper when drawing the bordered sentiment lines with a ruler
- Be very careful to not pick up stray ink marks on your stamp edge or ruler.
