I've been having a little go with this new product from PaperArtsy - Infusions - which, if not in a shop near you yet, very soon will be. They are ' water soluble particles with 2 components: dye colour pigment suitable for paper/ fabric mixed with Walnut stain.'
I've had a look at how to stamp with them with very interesting results.
First ink up pad with VersaMark/Embossing inkpad:
Then sprinkle on your chosen colours (I've only used one here, Sunset Beach, but you can use as many as you like):
Rub it in with your fingers:
Spritz with water:
and stamp.The image will depend on how much water you've spritzed, but just look at the detail you can get:
Second stamped impression:
Then re-spritz and stamp once:
Re-spritz and stamp again - notice how the walnut stain is starting to take over from the red, that's because the walnut crystals take longer to react with the water::
Re-spritz and stamp again - much less detail and browner in colour, but still great for backgrounds:
Re-spritz, (yep, it's still going!):
And those were all with just one application of the Infusion colour!
What's even more amazing, clean stamp with a baby wipe:
and stamp again - it's still going!
This is just one small technique - I'll be posting others as I try them out.
Thanks for looking!
