Distress Ink Watercolour

DEF77EE8-D7D6-4AD0-AD60-08B4312036BEHello again!  I’m back with a card for Day 4 of The 30 Day Coloring Challenge.

This card starts out with a stencil monoprint background using three shades of Distress Inks and a Studio Katia Stencil. There’s a link in my post from yesterday on instructions for this technique.

Then I used an embossing buddy generously over the entire piece before heat embossing in white. Next I watercoloured the floral image with the same three colours of Distress Inks, adding a bit of shading here and there.

After adding the sentiment in gray, I added my usual smattering of bling…this time gems, not sequins. Finally it was mounted on some dark gray cardstock.

Back soon with more my sweet friends…

Paper:  Canson Bristol and Simon Says Stamp Slate cardstock

Stamps: Studio Katia Lovely Blooms and Blooming Bunch (sentiment)

Ink:  Distress Inks in Shabby Shutters, Tumbled Glass and Seedless Preserves; VersaFine Clair and Versamark

Misc:  embossing buddy, heat tool, Brutus Monroe Alabaster embossing powder, Studio Katia Bubbles Creative Stencil, paint brush, adhesives and Studio Katia Spring Gems

  1. Gorgeous! Love the beautiful background from your stencil monoprint. The white heat embossed image and watercolouring really make the flowers pop. Beautiful card, my friend! xx
