Faux Watercolor Background

Hello, crafty friends. I’m back with more inspiration from THIS new release…

I started by inking up THIS background stamp with mini Distress inks. I recommend using minis because it’s easy to “color” in certain areas of the design and get in tight spots. After all the inking was complete, I spritzed the stamp with water and stamped it on to a piece of THIS watercolor card stock. The Distress inks react with the water and give a watercolor look, without all the work. I finished off the design with a sentiment strip from THIS pack of printed cards and some enamel dots.

Here’s a closer look…

I hope this inspires you to try this “faux” watercolor technique. Very quick and easy.

Thank you for stopping by today. I appreciate your time.
