Another Look At Water Colouring With Distress Ink, Changing Your Sub Straights...….. What Happens ?

Good Morning / Afternoon or Maybe Evening. Welcome A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog on using your Distress Inks to water colour with, and how easy the result were. I fell in love with the technique and have many more examples planned. I decided to change my water paper as Bristol (Strathmore) can work out expensive and many of you including me have far more standard water colour paper. I didn't expect any real difference, but I was very wrong! Here's both card projects. The top is on standard water colour paper smooth side and the bottom Bristol Smooth. When working on...

Thinking Of You Card Using Brutus Monroe "Rose Garden" Stamp!

Hello lovelies!I'm back this week with a thoughtful card using Brutus Monroe's "Rose Garden" stamp! Roses have a special meaning to me so I had to pick this one up!
