Hello crafty friends! It's Jess from JessCrafts.com. Today I have an artsy watercolor card created with Distress Reinkers, Avery Elle Stamps, and an MFT stencil. Check out my video for more on the technique.


I added water and and then drops of Mermaid Lagoon re-inker, Abandon Coral re-inker and Fossilized Amber re-inker

Once I had my background colored, I used the Hickory Smoke re-inker to color the elephant from Avery Elle's Ellie set.

I fussy cut out the elephant but you can get the Ellie Dies in the shop. Then I traced some of the triangles from the My Favorite Things Abstract Stencil. To finish it off I stamped some of the tiny sentiments from the set.

If you like some vibrancy to your watercolor then this will be a fun technique and it's a great way to use the re-inkers even before your pads need to be refilled.
