OCC Day 3 - Watercolor

Today's lessons over at Online Card Classes was all about watercoloring!  I really like this fun technique, but don't find myself using it very often.  So it was great to pull out the watercolor paper and distress inks for my card today. 

All of the examples in class were amazing, but Kristina's card was by far the easiest to replicate.  I first stamped the sentiment from a HA Christmas sentiment set and white embossed it.  Then I added the little images around the edge and embossed them as well.  Most of them are from the SU set jolly bingo bits.  After that, I added Peacock Feathers distress ink over the sentiment with a water brush, and layered in some Faded Jeans and finally around the outer edge, I added some Memento Nautical Blue ink.  The final touch was to add some stickles.  The red stickles seemed a bit too dark for my blue card, so I choose fruit punch stickles instead.  I was happy with the way it turned out, and think I will try it with some different colors of ink.
Thanks for stopping by!
