DIY Watercolor Background | Inky Paws Challenge #142

Hi me again! Yup, third time today! Guess I can say it’s been a good day! I just wanted to pop in here with a last minute entry to the Inky Paws Challenge #142.

I love splotchy watercolors, not only are the really quick and easy to make, they look so good!

To create this card, I started by die cutting a scallop heart from watercolor paper, using the Heart Frames Die Set. Then I embossed (in white) the little paw from the Smitten Kittens stamp set to create a background. After heat setting it, I smooshed distress ink (in worn lipstick, dried marigold, crushed olive and tumbled glass) on to some acetate. I sprayed it with water and ‘rubbed’ the heart die cut on to it. After carefully flipping it, I heat dried it to make sure that all the colors don’t mix together to become a mucky brown! Lastly I stamped a sentiment with dye inks to create a rainbow look. I used a sentiment from the Heartfelt Love stamp set, stamp on a banner trio die cut.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Happy Crafting!
