Apothecary Accents, Aqua Painted

Being a Blue girl I have never parted with my Ballet Blue inkpad from my first Stampin Up purchases! It is a bit low now but still has enough juice for this type of effect. The Apothecary Art image stamp and sentiment stamp is stamped onto Naturals Vanilla cardstock and then I have used the Aqua Painter to simply fill in the main floral image and do a pale wash effect on the outside of the border. I dyed the Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon by scrunching it into the ink pad and using a little water to spread the colour. (gloves are essential to stop your hands getting too dyed also). 
Hope you try this fast and simple method. Thanks for Looking, Liz


  1. Thanks very much Elaine, it was fun to do- feels a bit like when you were a child painting with water!


thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it, Liz
