Watercoloring with Hero Arts and Distress Inks

Majorly inspired by the sweet and talented Jenny Suchin, I had to take a stab at my very own water color card. I watched this video she made a few days ago and instantly new I had to give it a try! I stamped the Hero Arts Stencil Flower three times on my card base and masked it to apply a thick layer of Tim Holtz inks to the background. I added some Liquid Pearls to the flower center, matted that to the card base and voila….

I am playing in the Play Date Cafe color challenge this week. What a gorgeous palette. Head on over there and check it out!
