No-Line Watercoloring with Distress Inks feat Studio Katia Together We Bloom


Hello everyone! Today I am back on the Studio Katia blog with a birthday card I made using the Together We Bloom stamp set in combination with the Happy stamp set.
I wanted to try my hand at some no line watercoloring, so I stamped my images using Distress ink in Antique Linen on some Canson XL watercolor cardstock, and I painted them with my Distress Inks. I used Victorian Velvet for the flowers and Bundled Sage for the leaves. Once my images were dry I cut them out using the coordinating dies.


I then used the rectangle die in the Darling Ribbon & Dotted Frames Creative Dies set to cut my card base. The paper I used has an off-white color and a parchment like texture that I felt really matched the style of the card. The sentiment comes from the Happy stamp set: I stamped the word "happy" using Ranger Perfect Medium, and I coated it with Perfect Pearls in Perfect Copper. For the word "birthday" I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink.


For a finishing touch I added some sequins from the Rose Gold Fusion sequin mix. 
And that's it for today's card! I really hope you like it, and I hope I inspired you to create with these beautiful stamp sets! Thank you all so much for stopping by, and have a great day!
