Hi everyone! It’s Laura here and today I am back with a bright and cheerful card and a video showing how to create an easy watercolor background with Distress Ink Reinkers!
I created the background on some watercolor cardstock that I had die cut with the Scallop Heart Cover die. I wet the panel with water and added a few drops of Distress Reinkers in Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass.
I also added some droplets with water, my Distress Inks, white acrylic paint and Spectrum Noir Sparkle ink in the color Jade.
The images I used today are part of the Under the Sea stamp set. I stamped them with Spectrum Noir black alcohol proof ink on Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock and colored them with Illustrator markers.
Here is the list of markers I used
Manta Ray: LV3, HB3, HB2, HB1
Jelly Fish: BP7, BP5, BP3, BP1
Squid: OR1, GY3, CT4, CT2
Puffer Fish: JG5, GT3, GT2, GT1
Sea Horse: TB5, TB3, TB1
Crab: CT10, CT7, CT4
Tiny Fish: CT4, CT2, LY1
Star Fish: OR3, OR2, OR1
Sea Weed: CT4, CT2, CT1
Coral: BT6, IB3, IB2, IB1
Rocks: IG7, IG5, IG3
Once the coloring was over, I die cut the images with the coordinating dies.
For the sentiment I used the Lovely Words dies and for the black card background I used the Darling Ribbon and Frames dies.
I added some finishing touches with a glitter brush pen, a white gel pen and a black glaze pen. I mounted everything on a side folding card base and that finished off my card.
If you are interested in seeing the step by step process, here’s my video for you! I hope you like it!
Thank you all for stopping by and have a great day!
