Watercolour Rose

As you may know, Stampin' Up! Classic Inks are dye based, which means that they will run when wet. Usually you try to keep your work dry and avoid this, but sometimes it can be exactly what you need for your project.

Here, for example, I have stamped the big rose from Fifth Avenue Floral onto watercolour paper which was sprayed with water beforehand. The Regal Rose ink immediately bled out across the paper. Once the piece was dry, I used my Stamp A Ma Jig to restamp the flower in Regal Rose and create this simple yet effective focal point for my card.

Layer it with a few pieces of coordinating cardstock (in this case, more Regal Rose along with Soft Suede and Very Vanilla) and you have this ... I am very happy with the result!

Supplies used:
Stamp/s: Fifth Avenue Floral, Trendy Trees
Ink: Regal Rose, Soft Suede
Cardstock: Regal Rose, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Watercolour Paper
Other: Word Window Punch, Designer Label Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, Cutter Kit, Stamp A Ma Jig
