This is the same technique using stencils and distress inks I just posted. This card put me in mind if a teenager and will be used for my Operation Write Home donation. Stamp set is from Paper Smooches.
Tim Holtz taught a technique in Online Card Classes for Watercoloring today using his stencils. Simply place distress ink on the stencil itself in multiple colors, spritz with water and mono-print on card base. Easy peasy. You can also use perfect pearls spray too which would give a nice sparkle. Sentiment is stamped with Versafine Black and embossed. Sentiment stamp is from Simon Says Stamp with the same name “You Can Do Anything”. The distress colors are tumbled glass, squeezed lemonade and ripe persimmon. Gems and pearls from Hero Arts and sequins from Darice.
This is Day 10’s technique, which is free hand watercoloring. This is my first crack at hand paining and overall, I’m happy with it. I used Gouache paint, which as I understand it is a water-based ink. Banner is Simon Says Stamp and sentiment is from WPlus9 “Fresh Cut Florals”.
