Silhouette and Gelatos

I love stamping... funny I don't do enough of it these days... I am really enjoying this month working with Altered Pages partner Lost Coast Designs!!!
 
Today I want to share a technique I LOVE to do.  You never know what the outcome will be, which makes the surprise ending such a treat in itself!
I am using the unmounted Grunge Tree from  Lost Coast Designs stamps. It is a background stamp, measuring 4 x 5 1/4. Today I am using as my focal stamp. 

Supplies
Lost Coast Designs Stamp
Acrylic Block
Double Sided Tape
Waterbrush
Gelatos - assorted colors
Black ink
Watercolor Paper
Water

To start wet a piece of watercolor paper using a Waterbrush.

While the water is still wet scribble as pictured above with Gelatos, use the Waterbrush to blend them as desired.  Let dry! 

When the paper is dry you are ready to stamp.  Mount the Grunge Tree from  Lost Coast Designs stamp on an Acrylic Block with Double Sided Tape.  Gently ink the stamp on the raised areas!
 
With the inked stamp on the table, take the paper to the stamp.  Carefully burnish with your hand.
 
 
Remove the card from the inked image. The Gelatos create a beautiful background for the Lost Coast Designs Grunge Tree! 
 
The detail of the rubber is phenomenal, all the intricate branches.  
 
 
 
Be sure to stop by each day for more inspiration using Lost Coast Design stamps!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
