Give Thanks * Reverse Confetti

Hello and welcome to my Reverse Confetti September release inspiration series.

Today, I have another fall themed card for you. I used the beautiful wreath from the In All Things stamp set and Distress Inks to create this simple card.

 Idea: 

  • I recently rediscovered one of my favorite Distress Ink techniques. I created a card a few days ago and had so much fun, I wanted to make another one but with a different color combo. 


 Instructions: 
  • stamp the wreath from In All Things with Distress Inks onto watercolor paper (Distress Inks usually do not stamp perfectly but that's totally fine for this technique)
  • I used Tea Dye, Seedless Preserves and Victorian Velvet Distress Inks
  • now activate the ink using a water brush
  • spread the ink all over your stamped image, playing with the different shades
  • add splatters of ink with a paint brush
  • let the image dry
  • add Distress Ink to a slick surface (like a glass mat or a piece of plastic) and add some drops of water to them
  • pick up your Distress Ink watercolor with a paint brush and paint some details to your wreath
  • let everything dry
  • add a soft blend of Distress Ink to the edges of your card panel
  • make sure everything is completely dry before your stamp and clear heat emboss your sentiment



▶️  Tip: 
  • I have a short YouTube video on the easy Distress Ink Watercolor technique. Feel free to check out my channel for a step by step tutorial.

I hope you got inspired and will be back soon for more inspiration. Check out the Reverse Confetti Blog for lots of wonderful projects and ideas.


Thanks for stopping by!
Have a colorful day,

Nicole
