Stamp Your Art Out: Water Prompt #1

Our May 2020 issue Stamp Your Art Out theme was announced yesterday, so we thought we'd pop on here and give you a few ideas that might just get you creating (and submitting to the call!)


Of course, the theme 'water' immediately brings images of oceans, seas and beaches to mind. Of course, we love those ideas, and they're most welcome, but how about thinking about other watery ideas? How about..... Rain?
This fab card was created by Riikka Kovasin for our April 2017 issue:

Not just raindrops, but a rainbow and splashes too! Or, what about rain in a more abstract sense? Helen Alexander used a Visible Image rain stamp to perfection for the background in her project in the June 2017 issue:

We also have water used in the dramatic pink dribbles too, so two lots of water going on!
Water can also mean streams and rivers too, we still absolutely adore the technique Mark Alexander used for his 3D Challenge make in the June 17 issue:

This stunning effect was created using cling film and glossy accents over a blue inky trail, the origami boats are the perfect finishing touch, don't you think?

We are also encouraging you all to submit projects made USING water as well. There are lots of products that react when water is added, Brusho pigment powders being just one. We'd love to see some gorgeous Brusho projects, just like this card Linda Walmsley made for us in the November 2017 issue of the magazine:

There are of course lots of other ways to use water, Riikka shared a stunning masterclass in the October 2017 issue all about tea. She made sprays using teabags and water, and deep dyed fabrics too. All of these tea + water effects came together in her project:

We could be here all day sharing inspirational eye candy with you, but we'll call it a day for now :) Check back next Wednesday, when we'll have loads more projects to share, full of watery wonderfullness :)

Check out the Art Call post HERE to see how to submit your project to us!
Good luck!
