CARD: Watercolor Spritz Technique with Retiring Gorgeous Grunge and Wetlands sets

CARD

I had planned on doing an online class with this gorgeous technique, but ran out of time. So many ideas, so little time. So instead, I have taken a couple of photos below to show you how to do it. Both the Stampin Up Gorgeous Grunge & Wetlands stamp sets are retiring in a couple of weeks.

Gorgeous Grunge is one of my Top 10 “must haves” from the retiring products (see here). I will be using it for tomorrow’s Online Class. Wetlands should have made this list as well. The words in the Wetlands set makes it great for all occasions.

I stamped the Gorgeous Grunge Splatter stamp 3x’s in Soft Sky, Marina Mist and Soft Suede inks (see photo) on Shimmery White Card Stock. The paper makes a difference with this technique, Whisper White didn’t look as good.  Then spritzed it with water using the Stampin Spritzer. Takes about 10-15 minutes to dry. Then stamp your images. Technique from Kim Peck.
