Watercoloring with Distress Markers
video to practice a lesson from my online class. In this case, I used an old Stampin' Up wood block stamp that my grandma had for years. She gifted me with the entire set last year and I was struggling to decide how to use it. Kristina inspired me to give water coloring with the stamp a try. I think it took me a bit of effort to get a pleasing image - there are a couple of pieces that I left in the garbage bag when all was said and done. However, after playing a bit I'd have to say I really like the simple result here that created a beautiful focal point for a card topper. I haven't decided just what to do with these images, but I am thinking I will make a few up to put onto a Christmas card to give as extra's this year.
So adorable and really quick and simple to make. It kinda makes me look talented! I will resist the urge to downplay my part and simply say - I am pleased. Again, I would suggest you break out some of your stamp sets you haven't used in a while and give it a go. This water color thing is fun!
