Guest Designer - Just Us Girls: Week 2 Technique


I'm back for week two of my Guest Designer spot at Just Us Girls. Thanks for the lovely warm welcome last week, ladies!

It's technique week, and the technique to try is Watercolour Stamping - colouring your stamp with marker pens, then huffing or spritzing onto the image and stamping.  It's a pretty easy technique - all you need is an image stamp with some solid areas, and some marker pens.


I used images from Paper Artsy and Tombow pens.  I inked and stamped the flower then masked it while I did the leaves, then splattered some of the colour over the card.  The sentiment and the swoosh stamp are from the new release by STAMPlorations - there's a fantastic pre-release offer, and there will be a birthday blog hop later in the month.

I'm entering my card into Time Out Challenges, where the theme is Summer and Flowers,


and Keep It Simple, where the theme is Splatters (oh, yes! - I think I'll be coming back to this one).


So come on over and join in the JUGS technique challenge (it's a great one to combine with a colour challenge and/or a sketch challenge!).
