Second Generation Watercolor Stamping ft. SOA

Hi there! Today’s video will show you how to use Distress Inks to do watercolor second generation stamping. I will be showing just a bit more of the Stamp Of Approval box, using the Young At Heart stamp and die set. The stamp set has many layering images so I was able to add a fun twist on the second generation stamping.

First, I started by stamping the flower layering stamps in the bottom left corner fading out. To do this I used Distress Inks, inked up the stamps and sprayed them with water. Then, I stamped them down onto the card stock twice without re inking the stamp. Next. I used the stamp layered image and repeated the same steps, however I stamped the second generation color on the darker fist one. This makes it a bit more interesting and stretches your ink colors.

For the sentiment I cut the “wishes” die out of the card panel and stamped “birthday” above it. I love using word dies like this to vary the texture of the sentiment and add some variation. I added some jute twine in a bow and popped it on a black card base.

and… just when you thought I was done…

I decided to take it a step further and add a fun and quirky sentiment on the inside of the card. I love that the Young At Heart stamp set has some serious birthday greetings, but also some fun ones!
