Pretty Pink Posh Watercolor Blog Hop

Hello everyone! This is my second post after having my son at the end of March. It feels so good to be back to crafting, blogging, and entering card chellenges!

http://prettypinkposh.com/2015/06/watercolor-blog-hop.html

I'm really excited about today's post. I saw that Pretty Pink Posh was having a watercolor blog hop and I thought that this was a good chance to give watercolor cards another shot. I have tried making some in the past and I wasn't happy with the results. This time I used my Distress Inks and Distress markers (which I have been hoarding and have yet to use up until this point). I am really pleased with the results and I think I will continue to try and make watercolor cards with Distress products rather than actual watercolors in the future. You can check out the other beautiful entries here.


I used the distress ink pads and a paintbrush to make the background and I used the Distress Markers to color in the stamped Lawn Fawn images. I topped off the card with some gold embossing on the sentiment and some gold sequins.



I'm also entering this card in the Marker Pop anything goes challenge, the Lawnscaping Critters challenge and the Simon Says Stamp royal challnge. A castle means royalty right?

  1. Lovely card. I found you on the watercolour blog hop. Thanks for giving a little description on what you did with the Distress products. I have a few ink pads and markers, but haven't really figured them out yet.
    Also, happy belated birthday to your little boy! :)
