...I was takin' a bath... (you're welcome, you know you were thinking it!)
This week at Shopping our Stash we want you to play with wet media - watercolor, acrylic paint, distress inks - I'm already addicted to watercolouring with my distress inks. I wanted to try something a little different but at first it wasn't working, so I made a 'normal' watercoloured card. FINALLY I got my mojo in gear and managed my original idea. I used Distress Stains (in five colours lol) and liberally applied them over a stencil, moving the stencil around.
Since the stains are very watery, they bled underneath the stencil - which was the look I was going for - and I ended up with this!
Supplies: chipboard butterfly mermaid from (I think) Prima; doily; sentiment from Reverse Confetti; Chipped Sapphire distress ink; Distress Stains in Tea Dye, Chipped Sapphire, Tumbled Glass, Picket Fence, Antique Linen; Tim Holtz Bubbles stencil
And since I had this one all uploaded and everything I'll share it here:
Supplies: Flourishes daisies stamp; Reverse Confetti sentiment; Palette Noir ink; clear detail EP; distress inks for watercolouring, MME enamel dots; scrap of vellum
I didn't want the edges 'too' distressed, so I scraped them with my fingernail and then curled up two edges.
C'mon and get wet with us:
