This is like a tribute to rubber stamping;) I created a 5x7" art journal page using mostly rubber, clear or acrylic stamp images. First I added a lot of water on aquarel paper. This quality aquarel paper is thin and I had to be careful for the paper not to tear. I did have two weak places which where damaged because of the water. A very small part on the left corner (under) which was torn off and in the middle of the right side quite a torn.
After drying this background (it was quite wet) I added several images of rubber stamps to the back ground using 'not quite navy' (dark blue) and archival black. Following that I added 'not quite navy' ink. I finished colouring the flowers and the girl image with luminarte h2o. This part added more colour and certainly glimmer to the girl, the flowers and the whole art journal page. It was fun, fun, fun playing with the different rubber stamps and inks.
