Greetings friends. For today's card, I wanted to share an idea for coloring the new Painted Rainbow stamp. It has a really nice watercolor "brushed" look, so I decided to color directly onto the stamp with red, orange, yellow, green and blue Zig Clean Color brush markers. Next, I lightly misted the stamp with water and stamped it onto some 140lb watercolor paper. There were some places that didn't blend as much as I wanted, so I lightly touched them with a waterbrush until I got the rainbow I wanted. Once I let the rainbow dry, I stamped the sentiment on top. Tip- be sure to use a MISTI or another stamp positioner to stamp your sentiment. Stamping a sentiment onto watercolor paper, even smooth watercolor paper, often takes more than one stamping to get a crisp font.
For the background, I stamped the rain background onto blue cardstock with Versamark ink and then sponged it with some Ultramarine PanPastel chalk.
