Distress Markers


I have had this watercolor paper die cut with white embossed flowers sitting on my craft table for entirely too long. It was time to put it into action…

So I scribbled over it with messy lines of Distress Markers. Lots of colors – all the blues and greens. Scribbled – easy and messy. Then I sprayed the living daylights out of it with pearlized water (Perfect Pearls + water) and let it dry for quite some time. When I came back? It looked super cool. I love how splotchy and messy it became…

You could skip the Perfect Pearls and just use water for a more subtle look. And for less of the splotchy-look, you could use less water.

That background (great for subtle texture) and greeting are new. Lovey…


Quick. Easy. Artsy. Fun!

See you soon. 🙂
