Scene Painting with Distress Paints – Color Wednesday #35

Happy Wednesday, all!

Today’s card is a bit of a different Color Wednesday. Yesterday I was playing with Distress Paints and decided to turn on my camcorder and record it. So over the course of an hour or two, I made quite a few different Distress Paint pieces. Okay, let’s be real–I threw away over half of them! LOL! When you’re trying out things, there’s doing to be some mess ups and things you don’t like. This is one that turned out pretty cool!

I used four Distress Paints for this card: Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean, and Evergreen Bough. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these colors together. I often use the same colors but in Distress Inks or Distress Markers. They just look bright and cheerful together. :)

The tree stamp is from the Simon Says Stamp Giving Thanks stamp set, and the greeting stamps are from Color & Sunshine.

  1. Love this technique with the distress paints. I don’t have any of them so I’m going to try doing this with my distress inks or maybe water color crayons. thanks for the inspiration.

  2. I’m hooked on water coloring Kristina thanks to you. I have needed some artwork for our new beach house. After watching your videos and practicing on smaller projects like water color greeting cards, I am branching out. What better place to have water color art than at the beach! You are my inspiration!

  3. Very pretty card, Kristina. This is the kind of coloring I love. Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. This is soooooo gorgeous!

  5. I am lovin the water colouring techniques. Thanks heaps

  6. Beautiful! Love the video and especially that you showed how easy it was to dab off the extra color.

  7. I finally got to watch this video and Monday’s Nautical Roses. I just love the colors in both cards. You have such great ideas.

  8. Love this technique so much! The happy colour and the soft impression!

  9. Another great technique! Love the card :)
    (I just have to ask, did you design the fashionable Band-Aid too?)

  10. Great card. Loved your technique and can’t wait to try it. It’s perfect for spring! You should do a watercolor class now. Hint, hint.

  11. Hi Kristina, loved the video. I had a go and mine didn’t look too bad – I used Broken China for the blue. I had to disguise some stray yellow with Broken China distress ink sponged through Tim Holtz’ dot fade stencil. It made a great sky background. Thanks again.

  12. Very pretty!!! It would be interesting to watch the whole hour of playtime even if you didn’t make cards with the stuff! Thanks for sharing a great technique!!!

  13. By the way, do you really need to use that much dimensional tape for watercolor paper? I have been known to be a little cheap with that stuff and my cards arrived to the recipient in pieces–but that was a long time ago! Luckily, my mother-in-law just laughed when she told me about it. I told her it was a puzzle and she had to figure out how to put it together!!! So, needless to say, I am still trying to find a happy medium.

  14. Wonderful!

  15. This is a great idea, two minds working like one.
