I love the look of this stamped watercolor paper. I’m not sure what it will be used for – perhaps a post card or an embellishment in a scrapbook, but for now it is in our booth at Queen of Hearts.
I started with a piece of 140 lb watercolor paper. The weight is very nice and feels a little more substantial than card stock. It actually came in a little book with pre-cut post card sized pieces. I punched the corners with a paper punch, and next colored both sides with a watercolor pencil. These pencils are really fun and remind me of my childhood painting with the little watercolor trays. After coloring in both sides, I used a 1 inch flat brush dipped in water. This creates the watercolor paint on the paper. Fun, fun!
After the paper is dry I stamped using the clear honeysuckle border stamp with chocolate pigment ink. Both of these are in the Anna Griffin Elegant Borders Clear Stamp Kit in our shop.
Next I used the chocolate ink pad to distress the edges of the paper.
I love this honeysuckle stamp!
