Lost Coast Designs Grunge Tree & Gelatos

I love stamping... funny I don't do enough of it these days... I am really enjoying this month working with Altered Pages partner Lost Coast Designs!!!
Today I want to share a technique I LOVE to do.  You never know what the outcome will be, which makes the surprise ending such a treat in itself!
I am using the unmounted Grunge Tree from  Lost Coast Designs stamps. It is a background stamp, measuring 4 x 5 1/4. Today I am using as my focal stamp. 

Lost Coast Designs Stamp
Acrylic Block
Double Sided Tape
Gelatos - assorted colors
Black ink
Watercolor Paper

To start wet a piece of watercolor paper using a Waterbrush.

While the water is still wet scribble as pictured above with Gelatos, use the Waterbrush to blend them as desired.  Let dry! 

When the paper is dry you are ready to stamp.  Mount the Grunge Tree from  Lost Coast Designs stamp on an Acrylic Block with Double Sided Tape.  Gently ink the stamp on the raised areas!
With the inked stamp on the table, take the paper to the stamp.  Carefully burnish with your hand.
Remove the card from the inked image. The Gelatos create a beautiful background for the Lost Coast Designs Grunge Tree! 
The detail of the rubber is phenomenal, all the intricate branches.
