Happy Little Stampers ~ Watercolour Challenge May 2021

Hi Friends! It's time for a new challenge at Happy Little Stampers ~ Watercolour Challenge where our challenge is always

I like that you don't have to be a watercolour artist to join in our monthly challenges. Essentially, if you use water, in some way, you can join us. Here's my card

For my card, I started with Your Next Stamp's Celebrating You stamp set. The row of gifts, I stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder on an A2 sized piece of 96 lb bristol. I added color with distress inks (festive berries, spiced marmalade, mustard seed, mowed lawn, peacock feathers) with a water brush and some water. I was sure to blend the colours when they overlapped. I also spritzed them with water for a bit of a polka dot effect and picked up any extra water with a paper towel. I used the matching die, Your Next Stamp's Celebrating You die to die cut the row of gifts. I added a bit of salty ocean distress ink to provide a background for the row of gifts. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink. 

We'd love for you to join us and show us your watercolour projects.
