Hi there, it’s Nina-Marie here today with another Studio Monday video for you! I love creating watercolor effects with my distress inks, and I’m sure most of you here do too! But sometimes we need a card (or multiple cards) in short notice, and we often think we cannot do more involved techniques like watercoloring because of the amount of time it takes.

In today’s video I am going to share with you a watercolor background technique that was created with just a few distress ink colors and a stencil! I ended up making a total of five cards using this technique in just a couple hours… making this a perfect design for quick and easy cards!

I used the new Hero Arts Bold Floral stencil for the watercolored backgrounds on each of these cards… the artistic design of this stencil made it a perfect fit for the cards I wanted to create. However, you can easily swap out this stencil for just about any other stencils you have in your stash!

I also used the Concord and 9th Being Classy stamp and die set; these stamps and dies came out last year but it is one of my favorites still and I love the large type in the set. I stamped my sentiments in Hero Arts Tangerine bold ink and Soft Pool shadow ink.
