Happy Monday and Happy June 1st! I can’t believe we are already in June, right? Where did the past 5 months go?

1st day of the month means it is time for new Sparkle & Shine challenge! If you haven’t checked out today’s inspiration photo, make sure to head over there and join us ๐Ÿ™‚

There still is a big trend of watercoloring in cardmaking field and people are talking about all kinds of different watercoloring mediums. I wanted to share a way to create a watercolored look using Distress Paints! This is something we all have in our crafting stash I am sure, so why not use them?


This is a very easy card to created. All you need is to choose a color of Distress Paint that you like and transfer the paint onto a sleek surface that you can work with (like a crafting sheet).

I heat embossed the image with white embossing powder, and started with a small amount of paint and directly applied to the image. To fade out the color, add water as you go so you can get a lighter shade of one color. I actually used Neenah paper here, but I recommend you work on a watercolor paper so it can be easier to move pigments around.

But it is super easy to work with Distress Paint to create a watercolored look. I will share a video tutorial later this week, if you want to see a whole process. Take out the paints you have and start playing with them! Practice will bring better results every single time.
