Just Us Girls Challenge #258 - Water-Coloring

Vicki has asked to do some water-coloring for our Trend Week at Just Us Girls.  This is such a hot trend right now and I hope it continues for a while.  Love the look you get with all of the different water-coloring techniques.

Don't forget to check out what our September Guest Designer, Bobby and the rest of the rest of the JUGS Design Team have created.

I started by heat embossing the flower image with White Pearl embossing powder on watercolor paper and then watercoloring with Distress Inks.  Then added some drips of ink for some speckles.  Images and colored cardstock by Gina K.

This was my first attempt at this challenge, definitely need more practice at this technique!  Stamped the images with Antique Linen Distress Ink then watercolored over it all.

If you win Chic of the Week in any of our  September challenges, you will be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of November .  Please limit you entrires to 3 new creations per person, no backdating.  Good luck!
