Water Rose

I played along with today’s Make it Monday challenge: Spritzed Stamps at Papertrey.


Melissa shared a video showing how she spritzes her images before stamping and gets a beautiful result.

Water Rose | by karen @ carefree creations

I used an oldie but goodie – Rosie Posie. I didn’t bother with masking, but after the rose dried and I stamped the leaf and used a paper towel to mop up the green from the rose petal; it wasn’t perfect, but for the technique, it worked fine. I did add a bit of splattering by squishing an ink pad to an acrylic block, spritzing it with water, and then using a paint brush to flick it off the edge of the block.

Thanks for taking a peek!

  1. My goodness this turned out gorgeous! I am going to have to take that one out and give it a try! Stunning! Oldies are still some of my favorites .

  2. Karen, your Rosie Posie card turned out beautiful using the spritzing technique. Great use of the Filigree Border die, which I need to use, too.

  3. Very pretty! Love the soft yellows and greens and Rosie Posie is definitely a great set to use on this technique…think I need to go pull mine out! Love your side trim too. Lovely, lovely card Karen!

  4. That’s the beauty of the spritzing technique – it doesn’t have to be perfect. Your flower looks like a watercolor painting – just lovely!
