A Fun card using Watercolor Backgrounds with Distress Inks!


I was playing with my distress ink pads and making brightly colored backgrounds a technique I saw Shari Carroll do in the current Stretch Your Stamps 2 Online Card Class.  I needed to make a card for my Daughter and Son In Law as they just bought a new home and will be moving this weekend.
So I thought I would use the House Pivot card dies by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs and make a brightly colored card!

Here is the front:

Pretty bright House Huh??  I Love the intense colors of distress inks!

And the inside:

And a close up:

I used white woodgrain cardstock on the fence and I had a really hard time photoing it.  My Nikon is tough on white balances.

I get the fun part of their moving...I get to go keep the kids for an overnight at a resort this weekend!

Hope you have a great day....
Thanks so much for stopping by!
