I saw a post from Create a Smile Stamps a few months back using ink on a stamp block to create backgrounds. I felt inspired from this post and adapted it to use my favourite new watercolour paints and my whale stamp from Lawn Fawn Critters in the Sea set.

To do this I stamped the whale onto the card initially. I then stamped it onto a sticky label and used the matching die to cut it out. I popped the label version on top of it and painted away using my watercolour paints.

Wait for the paint to dry and remove the label cutout – if it is stuck down well, use a little heat to soften the glue.

I plan to make a whole range of these for use – keep an eye on the Instagram page for other designs!
