Little Tangles: Watercolor + GIVEAWAY

I am really excited for this months Little Tangles card challenge!

Watercolor is one thing that I always watched other people do and thought "Man that looks easier than most techniques". Boy was I wrong, but I'm glad this challenge gave me the push I needed to keep trying watercolor until I achieved the look I wanted. 

All of these cards were made using Distress Inks as watercolors.  For this technique I just rubbed my ink pad on my craft mat, spritzed some water on the color, and painted with it. I had better luck with this technique than I did with actual watercolors.

I hope that this inspires you to create a card using watercolors! 

Please submit your card HERE.  The winner will receive a Neat and Tangled stamp set of their choice- for more details please visit the Little Tangles blog! 


This week I am giving away the Neat and Tangled stamp set Tiny Triangles (seen below).  Enter to win by posting a comment on my blog below and let me know what your favorite go to technique is to use on a card. I will announce the winner on my blog next Thursday, February 12, 2015.  

Thanks for stopping by!
