Hello Friend!

Here’s a quick card that I made just having some fun playing with distress inks and water.  I was inspired by Andrea at AnnaBelle Stamps Community, you can see her video tutorial HERE!  I really wanted to play with the CASology ‘Bird’ challenge, how much fun is this idea (although last time I trouble uploading my card, cross my fingers I can work it out this time, I’m sure it’s user error…).  I used a sketch from this months Hero Arts August challenge, yes I know, I think I’m becoming a sketch girl!

  1. How sweet is that little owl!… love his google eyes and your water colour background is gorgeous 🙂

  2. As a fellow sketch convert *giggle* it’s really practice makes perfect, isn’t it? There are still some that make me shake my head, but I feel more comfortable with them now. I no longer get palpitations, anyway.
    Love the woodgrain perch, and the gorgeous inked panel – must remember to try using that instead of layers of paper. It’s absolutely stunning!

  3. Love the watercolouring – my favourite colours! Thanks so much for playing along with CASology this week!

  4. Oh, what a cute owl with those google eyes 🙂
    Hmmm, I haven’t tried distress inks with water. I love using Stampin’ Up’s watercolor crayons with water!

  5. HI Therese – such an adorable card. Love the inked ombre effect, and the wee owl is so cute 🙂 Will definitely have to watch this video, I am awful at inking 🙁

    Thank you.
