Have you tried the popular watercoloring technique yet? Well, Virginia started a new fun challenge over at Virginia's View Challenge! And, the theme this week is watercoloring. I've seen so many awesome cards out there in blog land featuring this technique, so I thought I'd give it a try!
Here is my card...
I started out with PTI card stock. It does very well handling the ink and water. I will try to use water color paper and water color paints next time. But, in the meantime, my neglected distress inks were calling my name. I sprayed my card stock with water and swiped the colors from my craft sheet. I sprayed it with water again. I hurried up the drying process with my heat gun. I've seen this technique done by Jennifer McGuire. The stamp set and sequins I used are from Paper Sweeties...Jelly Bean Time and Grape (sequins). And, the distress inks I used are from Tim Holtz...dusty concord, worn lipstick, and broken china.
It was fun trying this new technique. I'll be sure to try it again! Thanks so much for dropping by! Hope you have a great weekend, hugs!
