Distress Inks Water Coloring

Video: Watercolored background: Instagram Blog Hop


Hi there! Today I am participating in Jess‘ All the Sparkle Instagram Blog hop. There are 12 hoppers and loads of prizes so be sure to head to my Instagram account and comment there as there are large prizes to be won! For my project, I created a watercolored scene using this gorgeous stamp by Penny Black and distress inks (the exact colors I used are linked below in the supply list). To create “snow, I heat embossed some of the image in white… I decided to create a video to go along with this video!
