Watercoloring with Distress Ink feat Craftin Desert Divas Digi Stamps

Hi there! Today I am back with a card I made for the monthly challenge over at the Craftin Desert Divas Gallery, using the super adorable CDD Little Bear Garden digital stamp. If you have never played along in the CCD monthly challenge, I suggest you give it a try: every month you can win credit to the CDD online store, and let me tell you, that store is packed full of really cute stuff! All you have to do is to create a project using Craftin Desert Divas products inspired by the mood board for the month, add it to the challenge album in the CDD Gallery Facebook group, and share on social media using the hashtag #cddmonthly. Easy, right? :)
For today's card I decided to go for a soft look, and I used my Distress Inks both for watercoloring my image and for adding colors to my card elements, so that everything would match perfectly!

And the good news is that I filmed a video to show you the entire card making process! Here is the link you can follow to watch the tutorial on my YouTube channel!
I hope you enjoy it!
