Watercolor with Distress Inks

Hi everyone! It's the beginning of the month (again) so that means it's time for my monthly technique article. As part of the Hero Challenge this month, we are featuring watercolor techniques. I thought this would be a great time to show you how to use your Distress Inks for paints.

Here is a card I put together, I LOVE the birds on the branches! I've had this stamp for awhile and was wanting to use it, thought it worked well with the watercolor technique.


And here's a close-up of how I painted the bird tail feathers.


And now for your viewing pleasure....


I've added a feature to my blog, you can now check out the supplies. I hope that helps!





Enjoy!!
