A Watercolor Card

Happy Thursday
Today I am sharing a card I made using a stamp by Technique Junkies.


I am using the Contemporary Floral stamp once again!  I just love it. This stamp seems to be my favorite from the stamps just released in August.  Although it would be hard to choose a favorite, I have certainly gone back to this one again and again. 

I used my Distress Inks to create a watercolor look on this card.  I stamped the image using an Archival ink and I made sure to stamp it on watercolor paper.  I actually used a Distress Marker for the flowers. To do this, just rub your marker on either a craft mat, or on an acrylic block.  Spritz the ink with water and then use it as you would watercolors.  I picked up the color with a paintbrush and painted in the petals.  For the background, I used a variety of distress inks in green and spritzed them with water.  I dabbed the green ink on the card with a larger paint brush.  Once dry, I added a darker green ink toward the center of the card.Once dry... again.....I matted the card and added some clear beads just for some interest.  I thought it turned out pretty. A little different from my normal style but that's what I was shooting for.  

I hope you enjoyed my card today. If you have any questions just let me know.

Have a Wonderful Day!
