CC3C Challenge #5: Distress Watercolor

You can check out the challenge here for the Compendium of Curiosities distress watercolor p. 39 technique. I love using this technique.

Thanks to Inspiration Emporium for sponsoring this one!

I created these cards for an exchange at Stamp Camp, where a group of friends meets monthly to work on crafty projects and exchange handmade cards.

Close up of one using the blueprint minis, some patterned paper, and the happy birthday stamp by Stampin Up.

Same technique, different stamp, whole new look.

Over at Simon Says, the challenge is "anything goes" and all you have to do is be creative, so I am entering that also, here.

Be sure to check out the challenge, and hope you can join in on this or one of the upcoming ones. Thanks for stopping by to visit!




  1. Love the way you've displayed these cards! The watercoloring is wonderful, and love the designs! Thank you so much for joining us in painty challenge at CC3Challenge

  2. Lovely cards, the way you've used colour, in conjunction with the clever use of white space, has made these really eye-catching, crisp and fresh. Thanks for joining us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

  3. Maura...your cards are very very cool. They are so clean, crisp and the watercoloring is wonderful! I really like your designs. The window pane effect on four of your cards is a very neat idea...then focusing a different Tim blueprint watercolored image on each. I particularly like those! Thanks so much for sharing your cards with us at CC3C and thank you for the nice comment you left on my blog. <3 Candy
