~~if anyone can tell me why i have a pic come up sideways occasionally i would be eternally grateful - it is rightside up in my file~~
for this technique you need a stamp that is fairly solid - an outline stamp will not be as effective. i have just experimented with different ones and some look good and some don't.
ink up your stamp with various colors of dye ink - memento dew drops are perfect for this due to their shape - PLUS they have lots of yummy colors (and i have them ON SALE). once your stamp is inked as you want mist it very lightly with water and then stamp on watercolor paper. it is that simple!
