Watercolor with Distress Stains

Hi everyone!

This week on the Hero Blog, we've been tag teaming together to bring you a variety of cards featuring some NEW stamps from the most recent Summer Catalog!

I put together a card using Distress Stains and the NEW Large Lotus Background.  I LOVE this stamp with the stains!!!  Also, as I've been moderating comments on the Hero Blog and some of you have asked where to find the Daisy Die Cut from My Favorite Things.  I've include a link to Simon Says Stamps at the bottom of this post. 

and here's a close-up of the daisy flower


And now a quick video of how this comes together.


I've been hit with either a cold or allergies (I can't tell the difference) ...so I'm going to take it easy for a few days, stuff tissues up my nose and relax! Playing on the computer seems like the only activity I'm interested in right now... (that means more digital for you).  :o)

I hope everyone is having a good week!

Love this technique Shari!! Have you ever tried this with the regular Distress Ink pads? I don't have any of the Stains with that dauber applicator, so I'm hoping it can be done that way as well!?
