Distress Oxide Watercoloring Encouragement Card
Hello friends, its Nina-Marie here with you today sharing inspiration using our Simon exclusive Outline Butterflies background, along with some additional exclusives that we released in our Blossoms and Butterflies collection! This is such a great time to make and share encouragement cards.
The card is watercolored with Distress Oxides; not only are these inks amazing to ink blend with, but the rich colors also make for gorgeous watercoloring.
I was going for an ethereal style with this card, so not only did I use a myriad of colors for the butterflies, but also in the background of the card itself. Mixing Oxide inks is extremely easy, so even if you are a beginner at watercoloring, I think you’ll find this Oxide ink watercolor technique super easy and also fun!
To enhance the colors of the butterflies, I used a rainbow of Nuvo Gloss Drops on their wings, and also in the background. For sentiments, I used greetings in both the You Got This CZ Design and our Comfort and Prayers set.
