Technique Tuesday July 2018 Release Countdown Day 1

Hello everyone!!! Today I’m showcasing one stamp set from Technique Tuesday July 2018 Release!! Yes, the summer has finally arrived here in NYC. I’m so excited about that. I love the warmer weather and this new release.

Let’s take a look:

Beautiful Dragonflies

Here’s how this card was created:

  1. Cut a piece of watercolor paper and tape it down to a study surface.
  2. Wet the paper with a lot of water.
  3. Decide on the colors you want to use from Prima Watercolor Confections Essence and add them to the wet watercolor paper loosely.
  4. Heat set the watercolor.
  5. Stamp the dragonflies from the new Beautiful Dragonflies stamp set in black ink. Do not stamp so hard. You want a faded look for parts of the dragonflies.
  6.  Stamp the sentiment using Embossing Ink.
  7. Sprinkle Antique Gold Embossing Powder over the stamped sentiment.
  8. Heat set that embossing powder.
  9. Adhere the watercolor panel to the card base.
  10. Use We R Memory Keepers 3-Way Corner Punch to round the corners.

Simple yet elegant!

How to Stamp on a Canvas Bag

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today to show you how to stamp on a canvas bag using Technique Tuesday Cherry Blossom stamp set!!

Let’s take a look:

Cherry Blossom Stamp Set

I love the simplicity of this stamp set and the way it looks on this canvas bag. Stamping this image was easy with the Memory MISTI.

Let me show you how:

Place the Canvas bag in the Memory MISTI at the bottom right hand corner.

Memory MISTI

Add magnets inside the bag so that the bag does not move in the process of stamping.

Memory MISTI Magnets

Place the stamp where you want the image to appear, close the MISTI door and the stamp will stick to the plate. Now the stamp is positioned in the right place each time you stamp.

Memory MISTI

Stamp the image using ink that is waterproof since paint will be applied to the image. I used Ranger Archival Jet Black Ink.

Now its time to add color to the image:

Now it’s to pick the paint.

I went with QoR watercolors because I could blend the colors in the small space.

Memory MISTI

Nice and easy.

What do you think? Will you try stamping on a canvas material? I would love to see what you create.
