Spritzed Silicone Ink Pad

Technique Time!   This technique was actually a bit of an experiment.  First, I tried using watercolor paper that was spritzed with water and stamped directly onto the wet watercolor paper.  The image became too blurred.  Second, I tried inking the stamp and spritzing the water directly only the stamp and stamping onto a dry piece of cardstock.  It also didn't have the desired effect.  Last I tried inking the stamp and spritzing the silicone pad with water (that happened to be sitting on my desk).  That was the winner.

Here is a video for a better explanation and demonstration:
