Fishin you a great day! And first time using distress inks

I recently took the plunge and ordered some TH distress inks. I’ve been wanting to try water coloring for a long time now and finally did it! The verdict?  I love it. I love the way the colors naturally fade and blend.  For anyone wanting to try this out my first tip is: use a very light touch. A little goes a long way. 

My image is from High Hopes stamps. Cute huh?  And below is my complete supply list in case you were wondering. Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies: High Hopes Stamp, TH distress ink, water color paper, buttons, ribbon, MME Nostalgia papers, PTI kraft

Super cute, Jaci. I have been drawn to water coloring again, too. When I first learned how to stamp many years ago, it was one of the first techniques I learned. Love your card! :)

Jacilynn this is so adorable! I haven't played with the distress pens yet, but I bought a water pen and intend to try messing with the distress inks. I am hoping it's the same concept.
