DISTRESS MARKER BACKGROUND TECHNIQUE

Hey ya’ll, Kate Kennedy here with a fun technique using Distress Markers and water to create a background using just one stamp.

I don’t know about y’all but I have dived head first into the watercolor craze! The problem is … I am SOOOO not artistic!

That being said there are so many easy products out there that allow the artistically challenged ‘faux’ our way to some fabulous watercolored projects!

For this card I used the Elegant Flowers stamp set. It is so pretty and great for this technique.

  1. LOVE your cards Kate! Such pretty colors!

  2. Love your cards! I took Nicole’s watercolor class, and I agree… watercolor is fun, but hard for the artistically challenged, like me 🙂 Loved your watercolor ‘cheat’ techniques… so beautiful, and so easy!
