Papertrey Ink July Blog Hop - Watercolour Wishes

I didn't think I was going to be able to get a card in for this month's hop at Papertrey Ink, but managed to make a quick watercolour card using Kay Miller's method from this past weekend's Stamp-a-Faire event. I was inspired by the colours and the florals in the pillow.



For the first card I created using this technique I used Distress Inks and for this one I used regular dye inks. I prefer the results with Distress Inks, need to get more colours.

Thanks for visiting!


Supplies:
Stamps - The Sweet Life, Hooray (PTI)
Dies - Stitched Rectangles (Lil Inkers)
Ink - Lagoon, Tulip, Sunset, Baby Pink (CTMH), Versafine - Onyx Black
Paper - 140 lb. Watercolour Paper (Strathmore), Stampers Select CS (PTI)
Other - raindrops (PTI)
