Finally found some time to blog some of the creations I've been working on, hooray! For this card I used Unity's December 2012 Kit of the Month. I wanted to play around with my Tim Holtz distress markers and watercolor so I stamped with Memento ink onto watercolor paper. Mistake. Even though I waited for the ink to dry before coloring it still bled. It actually looked really horrible until I decided to just spritz the whole thing with clear glimmer mist and then soak up the excess ink. You can still tell that it bled but it's not as bad and it has a beautiful shimmer to it now. :) The papers are from Crate Paper's On Trend collection. I wanted to leave it sentiment free but it just didn't look finished to me that way so I finally added a miniaturized version of a banner from the stamp kit and the Merci stamp. I'm always short on Thank You cards anyways!
If anyone has any tips on using T.H. distress markers with watercolor I sure would appreciate it! Next time I think I'll try it using Staz-On ink and see if I have better results.
