Fun with Watercolor
Hi all. It's time for another challenge over at the amazing Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge Blog put on by Miss Linda Ledbetter. Challenge 5 is all about exploring Tim's Distress Watercoloring Technique Part 1. The walk through for this can be found on page 39 of his book by the same name (a must have for your crafting library). As all of the odd numbered challenges this one is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium a very cool site full of must have products, they also have a great blog full of incredible inspiration and fun challenges. So hop on over there and pick up some supplies so you can head on over to the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge Blog and join in some fun. Oh, you should also be aware that one special player will be chosen to receive a very special swag bag of goodies courtesy of the dynamic duo Tim and Mario themselves, awesomsauce!!! For this watercolor challenge I decided to pull out some goodness from my stash that I have had for quite some time, but haven't yet had a chance to play with; Paintables from Prima. These seemed like the perfect compliment to this Tim-nique and I had a ton of fun play painting. So, I can't tell you all exactly how this was accomplished, but I can say that after I painted up my paintables I went ahead and matted them up with some handmade backgrounds and some cardstock and stuck them on some premade cards I had handy and ta da!
