The idea of this technique is to stamp the image and then blur the lines to create a soft look. This can be achieved a number of different ways. Stamp with dye inks and use a water brush or damp paintbrush to soften the lines or, as I did, use watercolour markers and a blender pen to soften the lines.
I tried both methods and found the pens a little easier to control, I found with the water brush I was tending to do more of a complete colour in rather than just blur the stamped lines. I would suggest trying both and use which ever feels right to you.
My chosen stamp was from Chocolate Baroque - Punky Flowers (J&C Creations now stock Chocolate Baroque). I coloured the stamp with the markers so that I could stamp the whole image at once. This would be really good to do with Distress Markers as they stay active for ages but I only have a couple at the moment.
The sentiment is from a Creative Expressions set I think, embossed in gold and die cut with a Spellbinder die - Labels Six. Before removing the die I used the Distress Ink to colour the edges to match the picture. The sentiment is mounted on foam pads but I felt the image had enough layers already.
