Just Add Ink Challenge #338

Hi Crafty Friends,
Today I've taken part in a new challenge. It's the Just Add Ink colour challenge #338

I've made 3 cards all using watercoloring techniques with re-inkers and watercolour cardstock.  I particularly love doing this technique as every card is unique. 

The first card features the beautiful dragonfly thinlit from the upcoming Occasions catalogue. I have also used stamps from it's bundle stamp set, Dragonfly Dreams.

The second card is a shaker card.  I've used stamps from Totally Trees and the Square Layering Framelits to make the window.  

The final card i've roughed up a bit and distressed the edges of the watercolour panel.  Then I've placed another of the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits over the top.  

You may notice the splotchy effect of the watercoloring.  This has been achieved by placing rock salt over my watercolour paper straight after adding my colour from the re-inkers.  As the ink dries, the rock salt draws it in towards the centre, thus achieving a totally unique result.

I hope you have enjoyed my cards as much as I did making them.  Hopefully I will see you all again soon.

Stay Crafty,
XO Tan
