I needed, wanted, craved, and was starved for inspiration. I mean I searched for my mojo for days until this picture/pin, found here, set my mind into full swing. So much that I am ready for paint rollers and tarps so I can bring some of these glorious hues into my home!
I love this painting with stamps technique. For it to work you must use watercolor paper as it's heavy and porous enough for many sprits of water, blotting dry, more water, ink... I start by misting my watercolor paper with a Mini Mister filled with plain water. Then I stamp a layer of images and let then wick and bleed in the water. I blot a little with a paper towel then spritz more water and stamp again. I keep going until it looks done. With each repetition of water and stamping I spritz less and less and the result is a sharper, less defused, image. My last image stamped was the greeting. At that time the paper was totally dry.
