Family is Like Fudge

Yes, another card!  And not the last one today either.  :-).  Recently a fellow blogger started a new challenge.  Virginia of Yes, Virginia started a challenge blog called Virginia's View.  The challenge was to try the technique of watercoloring.  This card was done using some distress inks like watercolors.

Isn't that stamp funny?  I got it from my Mom.  It's by Momenta.  The background was basically done by using a brush with the inks (broken china and forest moss) and lots of water.  I basically just played around until I liked it.  I first stamped the sentiment and embossed in white.  I added the mustache in black after it dried as it amused me.  The mustache stamp is from Michaels.  I have to say it was a lot of fun playing around with this technique.  I encourage you all to try it!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
