Effortless “Watercolor” – My Favorite Inky Technique!

Hello! Today I tried my first Made In Minutes video. Although I went over my goal a bit (I will get better!), I share my all time favorite way to do effortless, shiny “watercolor.”

In today’s video, I revisit my all-time favorite way to create shiny “watercolor” looks with very little effort! This was going to be my first Made In Minutes video. And although I made the cards quickly, I did go over my “under 10 minute” goal. That’s ok! I will get better. 🙂  Be sure to watch the video for the technique details.

Here are the cards from my video along with the main products featured. For the full supply, scroll down to the thumbnails at the end of this post.
