faux watercolor technique with essentials by ellen

I love an easy stamping trick that produces great results like this faux watercolor technique! And another only need a few supplies - watercolor cardstock, water-reactive ink like Distress Inks, a spray bottle and a solid stamp!

The technique is super easy...
  1.  Ink solid stamp with water-reactive ink.
  2.  Mist stamp with water before stamping on watercolor cardstock. Give yourself a few practice runs to figure out how many sprays it takes to achieve the results you want.
  3.  Let dry or dry with heat gun and TA-DA!
Here's a quick video of the process...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
