Hug Me Cactus card

Welcome, my crafty, creative friends! I am back with a simple yet sweet card for Always Fun Challenges Challenge #49 Shades of Green! I had fun doing a cool technique that I saw Jennifer McGuire do earlier this week! She called it Distress Oxide Water Painting!

AFC#49 cactus hugs

Her technique is you stamp with VersaMark ink and emboss with clear embossing powder then you blend color on your water color paper with Distress Oxide inks and then buff the embossing with a clean cloth. Then you grab your water brush and add a little water to your image and press a clean cloth on it to lift the color and repeat! Such a cool effect!! Try it and join us for the challenge!!

I’m linking this card up at Cards in Envy for the Green Things Card Challenge and at AAA Cards   Challenge #110 Ombre!
