Lately I have been playing in my craft room with different watercolor methods. Most of the playing has resulted in card backgrounds or images that have not been made into a card as of yet- but it has been fun trying new things! I do find in this process that I have used my Distress Markers and waterbrush a lot. Today's card used several of the Tim Holtz Distress markers for stamping.
Two stamp sets from Quietfire were used on the card, Butterflies/Dragonflies:
The butterfly and Believe were used from the sets, respectively. The butterfly was colored using markers in Abandoned Coral, Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, Dusty Concord, Spiced Marmalade and Mowed Lawn. They were all stamped in a circle on water color paper as shown. Believe was stamped using Ranger's black Archival ink.
The image was cut to size, mounted on green paper and then mounted on patterned paper from Ken Oliver's Pitter Patter Paper Pad. Seam binding was dyed using Distress Stain in Spiced Marmalade and adhered. All of this was mounted on a tent fold card from a Tim Holtz Distress paper.
Such a bright colored and happy card! I think this card will be sitting near my work desk to cheer up the craft room at night or on rainy days. :)If you are interested in different water color methods, cards, and inspiration, feel free to visit my Pinterest board dedicated to water coloring.

Hope you all have a great day. Thanks so much for stopping by!
