Hi everyone. We're already over half way through December. Just a reminder about the CAS Watercolour's December Challenge this month ...
I've had this background stamp for AGES but think it's the first time being inked up. Always good to use a NBUS item (a la Darnell). :)
I actually removed it from the wood base that it came with and added a cling sponge base so I could use it in my Misti. The thing about intricate background stamps (or large stamps) is that they don't always ink evenly. I think it helped. Still a few little bare spots, but looks good.
I stamped this onto mixed media paper with versamark ink and heat embossed with white. Once cool, I lightly sprayed with water. Three small random dots each of Ripe Persimmon re-inker and Picked Raspberry re-inker were added over top, then misted with more water until the colours flowed. I let it air dry and then cut down my panel. It's a busy pattern, so I opted to leave it plain, just adding a simple die-cut sentiment.

I hope you come play along at our challenge. Create a CAS card using the Watercolour Resist technique and then enter your card in the linky. Hope to see you in the gallery!
Thanks for stopping by.
