Today's sample is a card that I made a few months back. I think I did this for a workshop make n' take. This is pretty enough to be framed! The stamp set I used is called Inspired by Nature. It was in the Fall-Winter catalog and is now on the Dorment list. The dorment list is a list of stamp sets that are still available but not shown in the catalog.

To acheive the effect, I colored directly on my stamp using Water Color Crayons, then misted lightly with water from a spray bottle and stamped the image on Water Color Paper. Every card comes out different when you do this technique. I love the softness of the look. When doing this technique, stamping on the Water Color Paper will give you the best outcome. The Water Color Paper Stampin' Up! sells is already cut to 3-3/4 x 5". Perfect for layering. If you are interested in any of these products, you can either visit my Stampin' Up! website and click the SHOP NOW button, or send me an email

Here are the supplies used on this card:
