Distress Watercolor Over Embossed Canvas

Hi Everyone!

I made a birthday card for my nephew – and I seem to have trouble making cards that are more masculine. I lean towards using light colors – which typically make my cards look more feminine. I’ve used a lot of different advice from people in this video on how to make cards more masculine (Carissa Wiley), how to store embossing powder (Jennifer McGuire), and how to use a laminated white piece of cardstock to help you see the color you’re picking up with a brush when you do watercolor with distress ink (Kristina Werner) – these ladies are all brilliant! You’ll have to see my video to see what I’m talking about – or you can check out their videos on YouTube :).

I like that the embossed canvas gives this card a lot of texture. I haven’t used distress inks in a while so I thought I would use them as well for this card.

Here’s my video – I hope you like it. Sorry if I sound tired (it’s pretty late here and I’ve had a rough couple of days with my youngest having a fever that won’t seem to let up).
