Hi all, Vicki here.  Today I am showing you an easy, fun way to use water colors.

Here are the finished card(s);

Here are the steps to making this card:

Step 1 – start with water color paper, taped down to stop buckling, and wet with water and a brush

Step 2 – using distress inks [they respond better with water], ink up your brush and touch to the card panel.  (Ink will start to spread on the pre-watered paper.)

Step 3 – after panel is dry, using your hand, sprinkle water drops over the dried ink.

Step 4 – stamped and emboss the sentiment.  [I used IBS Water Color Sentiments]

That’s it!  I added some sequins, and mounted this on a card base.  I do adore doing water coloring like this.  I like the idea that you don’t know what you will end up with!  You should try it – I know you will have fun.
