When I first saw the Stampin’ Up Watercolor World stamp I fell in love with it. I saw a card Linda Dale created coloring the stamp with markers and I was hooked! 


I started out coloring the stamp and doing some light watercoloring on this first card. 

It’s important to use Stampin’ Write Markers to color on the rubber. Stampin’ Write markers are water based and won’t dry out the stamp. Don’t use alcohol markers because they will dry out the stamp.


The words “Following your Dreams” are from the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Stamp Set. 

After I created the first card I was curious to see how it would look spritzed. So I took the Stampin’ Spritzer and spritzed with water. I LOVE LOVE LOVE how it came out. 


I used Shimmery White card stock for all of these cards. I think that is important when working with water. It’s forgiving and doesn’t tear as some papers do when they get wet. Especially with this technique.


On the 3rd card I created an easel fun fold. I added an arrow from the Give It A Whirl dies to indicate a special place on the map. You could have that point to anywhere in the world. 


The words are from the Greatest Journey Stamp Set. How perfect is the compass? It’s also comes from the Enjoy the Journey Suite, it’s part of the Enamel Sticker Icons. 

 
The last card is a multi-panel triptych technique. I have the measurements for the panels in the instructions.
