Monthly Class

Stamp Your Art Out! met today and we had a blast! The first card was done with the floating reinker technique. We really liked the look when we gently blotted the wet paper rather than allowing it to drip and dry. When you blot it a bit, you get a kind of ethereal watercolor look. I have done this with watercolor paper, but for class we used Shimmery White, which has subtle sparkles in it that show through the ink! Tres Chic!


  1. Rub cardstock with Embossing Buddy
  2. Stamp image with Versamark pad
  3. Apply White embossing powder
  4. Melt with heat tool
  5. Place embossed image inside a  plastic kitchen container, spritz well with water 
  6. Dip Aqua Painter into reinker and just touch to wet paper allow to spread on water, then wipe off brush and use next color of ink
