Just Us Girls #245 - Technique


Sue V. is our hostess for this week's Just Us Girls challenge.  She has chosen a technique called Watercolor Stamping.  The idea is to ink your stamp, mist it with water and stamp.   I colored my stamp with Memento markers, misted with water and stamped.  It leaves a soft watercolor look.....very pretty!


This is a fun technique, but you need to mist lightly.  I had to do it over several times because I put too much water on the stamp.
