Inspied by a post on Trimcraft asking if you could apply watercolours to stamps for stamping, i decided to try the tinfoil method i used below with the Works cheap version of H2Os. I made the paints quite thick but only applied a little of each colour to the tinfoil so didn't use a lot. I then pressed my stamp into the paint and cos i only had a small amount of each colour i turned the stamp round several times to make sure image was all covered. After i had stamped the image i took a piece of card and put that on the tinfoil and used it to make the border. Top pic shows the card in its true colours, the bottom one i darkened so you can see how the fine detail has been picked up by the paint. Think i will be using this method again.

I am a keen crafter and i love to experiment.
Altering things, jewellery and atcs are my favourite crafty things at the moment although i do like to combine my crafts. I am rubbish with instructions so i tend to make things up as i go along.
