There are SO many ways you can watercolor something. You can use tubed watercolor paints, you could use watercolor pencils, twinkling H2O’s, distress ink pads, etc etc
At Lawnscaping Challenge we are challenging YOU to watercolor!
For todays card I decided to play with Distress Markers! I finally caved and purchased the set. I mean c’mon what was I waiting for?
This is a similar card that I am teaching in some of my Lawn Fawn classes, but I switched it up a bit for this post.
For all the images stamped out I simply brushed the distress marker on them, stamped them on Distress Watercolor paper and then took a waterbrush to the image, where I softened the line, or pulled the color into the surface.
For the ducks feet I just touched my waterbrush to the distress marker to pick up some of the color, this way I was able to get a darker variation then the rest of the duck. For the pond grass, I stamped it in green, but then added some brown by again picking up color from the marker with my waterbrush.
For the pond, I simply just kept pulling color onto my waterbrush from the marker and coloring with it. I really like the over all soft feel this card has, no harsh lines.
For this Lawnscaping Challenge Lawn Fawn is hosting, so this is your chance to win a Gift Certificate from them! I hope you will play along and show us how you like to watercolor!
Love this sweet happy card and such a perfect sentiment!
