Twisted Challenge 03 - Water Stamping

We're so excited you are joining us today! Our goal at TTC is to push the boundaries. Twice a month, we give you a technique along with our own ideas & want to see you what you create to take that technique to the next level.

Today, we bring you water stamping!  Super easy & we've added some tips below. 
Items needed: stamps, ink, sponges, plate, paper towels, & water.
 Heavily sponge one to several colors of ink on your cardstock or other choice of paper medium.  Take a plate with a paper towel and soak it with water - this is now your "ink pad'.  Ink up your stamp with water and stamp onto your cardstock.  Hold for a few seconds and remove.  Let dry.

Use lighter colored cardstock and darker inks. The water removes the darker ink making the lighter color more vivid.

Stamps - Detailed Background stamps are great like Hello Doily! You're looking for good detail oriented stamps.

The Fabulously Twisted Design Team has added their projects below!
