Water Color Effect with Distress Inks


Good Monday Morning.  I had a wonderful long weekend of rest and fun, and hope the same for you.  Today we kick off the week with Prickley Pear's Mondays Post. 



This weeks projects really comes together thanks to distress ink and markers.  For the stamped center piece it was in with distress ink over the entire card stock.  I then spritz water on the stamp and stamped and blotted.  The I re stamped in the same spot with brown distress ink. I then flicked water over the entire card and blotted again.  The final was to color in the images lightly with distress markers.  It gave a great watercolor effect to the card.   Love it!!!

What a beautiful card, Lori! I really love the layered die cuts, and that watercolor technique is so fun and pretty. Really gives such a unique look to the image. :)
