I took a class last month at Photo Memories, a local scrapbooking store. The class was taught by Valerie Wilson, who was filling in for Kim Prince. She showed us a watercolour technique using Distress Inks, a spritzer with water, a Teflon mat, and plain white card stock. Love the effect you get! Each card you do turns out different.

Isn't he cute?! The stamp is from Stampotique Originals. Love their goth people stamps! Distress Inks I used were Faded Jeans, Rusty Hinge and Peeled Paint, with some Vintage photo around the edge. Used Red Velvet Glimmer Mist on the corner. The word stamp and grass are Tim Holtz. The bird and butterfly were found in my drawer; no name! I paper pieced "Twinkie" and used Copic E00 Skin White on face and hands, with some Blush. My current fav technique! See end of post for a Tim Holtz video.
