On the card above I used a technique I love. I took a white Color Box pigment ink stamp pad, a small brush and some water. I put a small amount of water on my brush using an almost dry brush technique where I dip the tip on the pad and paint it directly on the card. I do this several times until I get the effect I want. With the holly I used watercolor pencils.
The papers I used in this card are by Melissa Francis.
On the card above I used "pebbles" brand chalks and very small cotton balls in a holder also produced by Pebbles.
I love how different this stamp looks with different techniques. I am fascinated using print paper as a back ground. I still have a card I made with Stickles that I will save for later. Keep watching. Leave some love comments are welcome.
