Hi, today I want to share some cards I made using Distress Ink spritzed with water to create a watercolor effect. The stamp is Hollyhock from Impression Obsession. I made the background paper using the same colors as the flowers, both done on watercolor paper. I died some hemp cord with Distress Ink to match the stalks and used a Copic Marker to color the gems to match the green as well. The butterfly was diecut with an Impression Obsession die and covered with Stickles glitter glue. Lately I can't get enough of this watercolor technique, hope you like it!


  1. The hollyhocks are delightful .Your water colouring is fabulous .
