PaperArtsy Infusions - the gift that keeps on giving!

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:

 and twice:

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!
