PTI MIM #256: Spritzed Stamps and CWS Ink Splatters

Melissa got her turn to share a fun "spritzing" technique with us this week for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday. In her video, she showed us how she inks her stamps, mists them and then stamps on watercolor paper for a watercolor effect. The biggest challenge is choosing stamps that work well with this technique. Not sure I chose the right ones, but I do like my end result because it's different for me (a 4.25" square card). Here you can see for yourself.

I really like this card. I saw it before I made mine and I think that you picked a very nice design for your spritzing technique.

I love your card, Kathy.
The feathers work perfectly for this and you did it well!
You chose well!

I think this turned out beautifully Kathy! Those feathers are just lovely with the softened effects of the water, and absolutely love how you did the background! Love that it's a square card too...every so often you do need to do something just a bit different!! :0)

Kathy, I also had a hard time with stamp selection for this! I think the feathers are perfect for this technique and your card turned out lovely!

I too had to go through my stamps to find something that would work for this technique. I think the Doodle Feathers look great. You can see some of the water pooling but you didn't lose the detail.

Kathy, I love your card! The Doodle Feathers are so pretty with the water-color technique and your ink splatters are a perfect background. Thanks for playing along with Creative With Stamps July Challenge! :-)
