Happy Birthday by Fran


My new passion is water coloring.  I was so surprised how easy it is to water color.  And the best part it doesn’t have to be perfect!  My card today is water coloring stamped images.



My card design was inspired by this You Tube Video.

Water coloring With Distress Inks


The card is 5-1/4” square.  I used water color paper that is 140 lb. weight and cold pressed.  Paint medium used is Distress Ink by Ranger.  The stamp used is called Favorite Flowers.  I placed tiny sequins and rhinestones on the front of the card for a little bling.  And I used glossy accents to hold the sequins in place.   What I love about water coloring is all the imperfections that happen once it dries and yet it has such a neat look.  You should try water coloring you would love how easy it is.  If you have Distressed Inks in your stash then all you need is some water, water color brush, and water color paper.  Using Distress Inks makes water coloring FUN!


You can get the following items from Cutters Creek Online Store:

Distress Ink Pads

Distress Ink Reinkers

Glossy Accents


If you have any questions about any of the other products used you can contact Kim to see if she can special order it for you.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope that I inspired you to try the water coloring technique.
