Watercolor with Distress Markers

I decided to try a little something different.  I had seen some cards using  distress markers and water to give a watercolor effect.  So, I decided to try it.  I used some stamps from Stampin Up for the flowers, leaves, and stems.

Here is what I came up with……..


I used watercolor paper to stamp my images.  I used the distress markers to stamp the image as well.  I found that this was a pretty easy thing to do.
