Thinking of You

Hi Crafty Friends and Happy Easter!

Today I am sharing two cards I created recently using the Distress Oxide Water Painting technique that Jennifer McGuire shared on her blog last month. You can see her blog post here

For my cards, I used W Plus 9's Beautiful Bouquet Clear Stamp set which I stamped onto my white cardstock using VersaMark ink and then embossed using white embossing powder.

I covered the entire piece of cardstock using Candied Apple & Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide inks. I then used a water brush pen to remove the ink from the flower petals and leaves, dabbing the area after applying the water.

Once I had removed the color from the flowers I using the water brush pen to apply color in a watercolor fashion using Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink to the flower areas and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink to the leaves.

For the sentiment I used the "Thinking of You" sentiment from Concord & 9th's Fabulous Phrases die set.

To finish off the front of the card I added White Nuvo Crystal Drops.

For the inside of the card I added one of the sentiments from the Dahlia Turnabout stamp set also by Concord and 9th and stamped a portion of the flower that was stamped on the front of the card in one corner using red ink.
