Below are the steps I took to create these backgrounds:
Supplies you will need for this project:
-Couture Creations' Fine Designs Collection - C0723251 Passion Embossing Folder
-Distress Ink - Shabby Shutters
-Distress Markers - Milled Lavender, Tumbled Glass, Spiced Marmalade
-Inkssentials Mini-Mister filled with water
-Tsukineko Sponge Dauber
-White Gel Pen
-Candi Dot Embllishments
-Martha Stewart Classic 3-in-1 Butterfly Punch
-Stampers Anonymous - CMS155 Simple Sayings
3. Then, using a Distress Marker, color the flowers onto the flower portions as desired.
One thing to remember is that each piece you make will come out differently. This is a watercolored effect, and that is the beauty of it. You will notice some inks bubble up a bit more, I tend to go for the lighter shades for the effects I achieved here.
