Just Us Girls #258 - Trend Week


I am the Hostess over at Just Us Girls this week.  For Trend Week I chose water coloring.  Between you and me, I am not an artist.  I tried, really - I trashed what I made.  So I went to my back up plan.

Using Inspired By Stamping's Spring Blossoms and Summer Fun, I stamped the flower image with Ranger Archival ink onto water color paper.  Using Distress Inks and a brush I water colored ink over the images.  Once done, I then spritzed water all over the panel to let the colors blend a little.  Now this is my kind of water coloring.  I.am.not.an.artist.  Just sayin.

So, there are many different styles of water coloring - you can use any one you like.  I sure hope you play along over at Just Us Girls #258.  I can't wait to see the entries.

PS - We are also running a DT CALL!  If interested pop on over and check out how you can apply!


Thanks for stopping by~

Your watercoloring turned out beautiful Vicki! I love how vibrant those colors are. If you ever want to try watercoloring stamps you should check out Dawn Wolslagle's videos. She is the only reason I even tried it. It's so easy :)
