In example #2, I simply misted the stamp once more, without adding any more marker colors, and stamped again. This time, my image is a bit lighter, but still quite visible.
Now, in this next example (#3), I stamped the image once more, still without adding color to the stamp, just more misted water, and this is where you can see the watercolored effect better.
Art Journaling with Terri Sproul 2 stamp set with Black Soot distress ink.
I fussy cut the flowers and embossed them with a stylus to give them some added dimension. Emboss the outline of the flower on the stamped side. Then turn it over and emboss the centers between the embossed lines you made on the front.
You can see the purple one, on the left, is more shapely than the very flat pink one on the right. Set these aside.
Let's put the first card together.Terri Sproul's Wish stamp set twice onto scrap white cardstock.with black StazOn. Color one butterfly with Twinkling H20s in Blue Grass and Golden Opal.
Stamp "Beauty" onto a scrap of white card stock with Peeled Paint distress ink. Die cut a label shape around the image.
I used the two colors of Twinkling H20s to color the label, spritzing with water and allowing the colors to marbleize. I curved this label when adding it, and used the metal studs to appear as if it is holding the label down on each side.
Adhere all the pieces to the card, as shown in the photo above.
Card number two is layered over the die cut cream doily that I distressed with Antique Linen distress ink. A few decorative swirls were die cut from the same die and added beneath the flower.
