Did you hear? Ranger has released the remaining colors in the Distress Watercolor Pencils! Three new sets of 12 pencils each! YAY! Now we will have all of our favorite Distress colors to watercolor with! Get your bundle here!
There are 73 Distress Watercolor Pencil colors, and the tins only hold 12 per tin. I like to keep my pencils in the tin because I use them like a palette. I have decided to take the Picket Fence Distress Watercolor Pencil out and store it on the side since I don’t use that one often.
- I shared some good information about the pencils when they first came out in this post here.
- You can also take my online Distress Technique class, all about the Distress Watercolor Pencils; more details here.
- I plan on offering another Distress Technique class, focusing on Distress Watercolor Pencils, where we can build on what we learned in the first class- stay tuned for more details!
- I have shared many fun projects and tutorials with Distress Watercolor Pencils; you can find them on my website here.
Never Grow Up, Distress Watercolor Pencils
I was looking forward to playing with the recently released colors of Distress Watercolor Pencils, and I wanted to play with different techniques and supplies I usually use.
I started by scribbling pigment from the pencils directly onto the stamps. I used Dina Wakley’s Seeing Is Believing Stamp set for the leaves. I used Uncharted Mariner and Seedless Preserves Distress Watercolor Pencils. I then cut the leaves out. For the background, I used the Tim Holtz Sticks stencil. I started by scribbling some of the Distress Watercolor Pencils directly onto the stencil. I used Saltwater Taffy, Uncharted Mariner, and Crushed Olive. , I spritzed the stencil with some water and flipped it over onto a piece of Distress Kraft Heavystock, printing the stencil onto the cardstock. I dried this with the Ranger Heat Tool.
I then put the stencil back in place and scribbled some other Distress Watercolor pencils through the stencil here and there. I then inked up the scripty stamp from the Dina Wakley Set with Ground Espresso Distress Ink, and stamped it over the stencil, so it only left some script here and there.
I then arranged the leaves onto the background. I splattered some white paint, and added a sentiment from Tim Holtz Snarky Sticker set. Lastly I added a few pearls from a set of Honey Bee Stamps pearls.
I have an online Distress Technique class all about Distress Pencils that you can take now! I plan on offering a second session soon- be sure to subscribe to my email newsletter so you don’t miss the announcement and details.
