Here's a card I made using a technique I learned in the Creative Chemistry 101 class. I have always loved the look of watercolors, but was never successful at using them. Using the Distress Ink Pads on a stamp and then stamping it gives the look of watercolor with no effort...a great technique. I used various Distress Inks directly on the stamp, then "huffed" on it to give it a bit of moisture and stamped directly onto watercolor paper. I then attached the water color to a craft card, added a ribbon with a dark brown pearl, then colored a cut out butterfly with Distress Ink and a water color pen (another technique learned in the class). When it was dry, I covered it in Glossy Accents to give it a bit more dimension and attached it to the card. I hope you enjoy this one!
