Twinkling H20's ~ rubber stamping technique

They are wonderful for "direct to rubber" techniques.

Here's how:
1. Spray a little water with a fine mist spray bottle or even just drop a few drops of water in with an eyedropper. Mix the water into the paint with your paintbrush. Have several paintbrushes on hand to do this, one for each color you're using.

2. Make sure that your stamp doesn't "resist" the paint. Some stamps, especially the bold ones, resist water-based paints due to a coating on the rubber from manufacturing. If your ink pens or the H2O's tend to bead up on your stamp, just lightly sand the rubber with a fine grit sandpaper (I use 600 grit) and clean the stamp.

3. Paint the H20's onto the rubber. Bold stamps work well, but fine line work well too! If you're quick with your painting and your paint is still wet, stamp immediately. Otherwise, use a fine mist bottle and lightly mist your rubber, then stamp. Mist again, stamp again to get a lighter impression. Do this again to create various depths of image brightness and to create "shadows".

4. Let dry and enjoy!

The Hero Arts real flowers collection works exceptionally well with this method.

Crafts are here

Crafts are here, crafts are there,

My craft supplies are everywhere.

I really should clean this mess,

but I like it I confess.

Floor is littered, chairs are piled,

Kitchen's looking pretty wild.

On the table, counter too,

Seems that any place will do.

Hall is stacked with cartons high,

filled with things folks like to buy.

Garage is full, but so far....

there's still room to park the car.

I never have an idle day,

New ideas come my way.

Don't know yet what I'll create,

but my imagination's great.

My family smiles, they don't complain,

although at times I am a pain.

but when all is said and done,

I really am a crafty one!
