Paper Smooches Funness

Hello Friends!

I wanted to share a card I made for the March Paper Smooches release! I have had so much fun watercoloring lately! I used to watercolor years ago, and really didn't want to get back into it. It seemed "old" to me, but I am so glad that I did! I have had SO much fun playing with my watercolors and using my distress inks for watercoloring and I just love the look!


I simply wet my piece of watercolor paper and dabbed on some distress ink with a watercolor brush. So very easy! After it dried, I splattered it with water, embossed the swirly stitches, heat embossed the sentiment, and added the butterfly with foam tape. The butterfly was cut out of some paper I had sponged with Distress inks. I added a little detail with my white gel pen.


Supplies From Paper Smooches Used:


Distress Inks:
Worn Lipstick
Picked Raspberry
Spiced Marmelade
Mustard Seed

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hope you have a happy day!

Hugs,

Kay :)

  3. Oh my goodness gracious! What a gloriously pretty card! You make is sound so easy, I have a sneaking suspicion that you were fabulous with watercoloring. Giggled that you thought it was old. I know exactly what you mean. I adore the colors you chose for this card, So bright and cheery. Adding the white gel is super smart. All around fabulous! :)
