You can spritz the background or not depending on the look you are going for. Because the ink is dye based, it will react. The main image is and some of the small ones are from A Stamp in the Hand. Then I used some small stick stamps from Stamps by Judith. The Saying is from Imaginations. The flowers are from Prima. They have been dipped in UTEE.
As you can see you get a different image depending on the amount of moisture in the ink and on the rubber.
The image below looks more like watercolor because of a spritz of water before stamping.
Happy Summer Vacation!
