Use Stamps with Watercolor Paint to make fabulous papers for collage and other projects!
Here's a great way to use any variety of stamps to decorate paper for use in collage and cards.
Simply collect whatever stamps you want to use, some paper and get out your watercolor paints....any will do!
Mix up a wash of paint onto your palette and stamp away! I use the stamps as a texture and am not trying to create accurate images of the stamp. Overlap the image and stamp several times in a row. The water will let some fo the image bleed and other parts will appear clear. You can easily change a color to add variety to your paper image.
Here are some of the papers I've created. Using the watercolor paint allows you to easily change colors. Once the image is dry you can also add more layers OR go over the image with a slightly wet watercolor brush to blur the image. I keep a wet wash cloth or paper towel nearby and simply dab the stamps onto the towel to clean them off after each use.
So many possibilities! Experiment and have fun!
Use your papers to make fun cards for family and friends!
