Stamping with Lumieres

Bev Speare showed us a neat technique on Saturday, which I’d like to do more with. She worked generous amounts of three Lumiere paint colors into a Cut and Dry pad, chose an image—flowers seem to work well—and stamped it on black cardstock. You need to dampen the pad slightly first, and wash your stamp off immediately after using it.
I tried this technique with one of my favorite stamps—Night Tree by Paperbag Studios—then scanned it and turned the image into an ATC. While I’ve experimented with stamps and paint in the past, this method seems to work best.
