Time again for a Global Design Project….
and this week it’s another fantastic sketch made by Teneale Williams!
When I first started out in stampin’ Up! I played around with colour on the “Clear Blocks” and using that as a stamp.
It gives you a “Water colour Background”,I love the different effects you can get.
So I decided for this layout that’s what I would do.
To get this effect you do have to work quickly so have every thing ready…
- Card stock, in this case Shimmery White, it will give that little bit of extra sparkle and will handle the water used.
- Spritzer bottle filled with water
- Stampin’ Write Markers, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral and Watermellon Wonder..(don’t you love the colour names…I do)
Using the Stampin’ Write markers I coloured in the block starting with the lighter colour at the top
and working down to a darker colour at the bottom.
Then a light spray with the Spritzer onto the block and stamp down onto card stock. I held it there for approx 2 minutes, just to let the colour spread.
Carefully lift the block, you may have a pooling of ink just blot any excess ink with paper towel or tissue.
When dry stamp your image on top…here I embossed the floral heart from “Bloomin’ Love” and embossed with white embossing powder.
Triple mounted…added some pearls and a sentiment just under frames.
Give it ago…would love to hear how you went with this great technique.
Keep on Stampin’ Up!

What beautiful texture you achieved with this technique. Such a beautiful card! Thank you so much for playing along with this week’s Global Design Project Sketch Challenge!
I love this technique Michele and I love that you’ve gone with a monochromatic ombre look. It’s so effective yet doesn’t take anything away from that beautigul heart stamp! Thanks for joining the Global Design Project again this week!
I love this technique too! Thank you for playing along with the Global Design Project challenge!
