Have you used Distress Markers yet? I picked up some a few weeks ago and I wanted to show you how I use them as watercolors!
If you aren't so great at painting, this gives you a little more control. I stamped the hot air balloon from the new Blue Skies onto watercolor paper and then I cut it out using the coordinating die cut (Lawn Cut).
I started by coloring the marker in the areas that would be the darker areas. I used Worn Lipstick, Broken China and Mustard Seed.
Then I just took a brush that had water on it and pulled the ink down.
Then I stamped a cloud using Distress Ink (Broken China), took a water brush and messily added water to give it a watercolored look. Cool, huh?
Here is the finished card:
I think it gives a soft, sweet look, like watercolors do, but this was faster (and easier!).
