I took a piece of Whisper White for my stamping. At home I probably would have chosen to use water-colour paper, but I'm not home. I wanted to see if it might be possible to stamp with the Brushos. Wetting down a folded paper towel, I sprinkled a line of the Prussian Blue Brusho crystals. As they reacted to the water in the paper towel, I imagined them going "snap, crackle, pop". Once they were a solid colour, I took the river shape and stamped it into the blue and then stamped the colour onto my Whisper White. I was happy to see it had worked well. There was even a certain amount of "Brusho" texture because some of the crystals were clearly darker than others. Then I did the same with some of the Moss Green Brusho crystals and stamped the grass behind the blue river.
NOTE: The Brusho crystals stained the photopolymer stamps and the stain does not remove.
For my mountains, trees, and scattering of "gravel", therefore, I used the Distress inks which I had on hand. The only green I had was the Faded Shutters and I wound up having to stamp the image four times in order to get the saturation of green that I was hoping for.
Finally I added a moon and for that used the Antique Linen Distress ink. Not entirely happy with that, I took the Gamboge and Yellow Brusho Crystals and mixed them on a wet paper towel. Stamping with that made the moon the colour I was hoping for.
I can hardly wait to be home with all my normal supplies on hand, to see what else I can do with the Waterfront stamp set.
I'm entering this card into the Inkspirational Challenge #151 which is all about stamping. Mine may be a bit unconventional, but it was entirely stamping.
