How y’all doing today?  Finally after rain delays we are racing (while I’m typing this that is).  I have a watercolor card to share with you today.  It’s been awhile since I’ve stamped anything on watercolor paper and figured today was a good as any day to do so.

I used one of my favorite Karen Lockhart stamps (that I picked up at Papertrix last year).  The image was stamped in Ranger Archival Jet Black, and water colored with Distress Stains.  This was a first for me (the stains), and I will say it went rather quickly.  I still think the re-inkers might be more vibrant and float better, but I had to try the stains . . . at least once.

Here’s a close up of the image with all the layers, that are separated by 3D foam squares.

That’s it for now . . . because I don’t know what else to say about anything, except . . .  go Mark, go!

  1. Hi Sherry! Ohhhh, I like how you colored in the stamp….Very nice!!
    Such a cute card! I like the spellbinder’s dies too..Good Job, Sherry!!

  2. It turned out very pretty. Glad you tried it, now the rest of us can. Thanks. Edna

  3. I love using my Distress Inks (both pad & re-inkers) to watercolor with. I’ve just recently starting using my Distress Stains… it’s a subtle difference, but I think it depended on how I “picked up” my color. I attempted picking it up directly from the pad and was not happy with the results. When I stamped on my craft mat or even an acrylic stamp block.. I was much happier. I could control the amount of color much better. I’m dying for the new markers to come to town and can’t wait to see what you’re doing with them!

  4. Sherry, beautiful! I have to ask, what do you color your ribbon with? Distress reinkers, or copic? Your bow is just gorgeous! Thanks for sharing!

  5. I absolutely love your card! I like antiques, so the crock of hydrangeas is definitely a winner. The colors are so pretty and I just keep finding things I like about your card! I mainly use watercolor paints to colorize images, but your stain use is very, very pretty. Perhaps I should give them a try.

  6. Sherry, this is stunning. Love the water color technique and this stamp!!!! I just love the layering you did with spellbinders. I am such a huge fan of spellbinders. I just can’t get enough of them. Have you tried the distress markers yet?

  7. so pretty, love that image and the color combo! I never thought of trying the stains, I just posted a card today that I colored using the distress inks, and I like how that works, now there is something else to give a try, tfs!
