Layered Distress Watercolor: United We Flourish Bloghop, Ellen Hutson + Concord & 9th


Layered Distress Watercolor

The United We Flourish stamp-and-die series has been so much fun this year – and this time the Ellen Hutson combo with Concord & 9th is sure to be a hit! I always struggle with how to make solid stamps a “coloring” thing since that’s my schtick – but I think I got it this time! Distress inks and the miniMISTI made me pretty happy with my CAS cards.  Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

  15. Sandy, awesome cards I love how you did them. I saw you do the second set a few days ago which was cool because I could never figure out how to get that swirl in the frosting to look real and your video was AMAZING how you did that shading to make it look so real I wanted to reach right in and grab and eat it, lol. Thanks.

  17. Sandy thank you so much, I am so glad you used Distress Ink. I don’t have Copics and it is sometimes so difficult to get the same result with Distress ink. I love the stamp set, who don’t want to have a nice cupcake or icecream?

  18. What a neat technique! I definitely want to try this. Thanks for sharing.
