Compendium of Curiosities III-Distress Watercoloring Part 2

January's not even over and the year is already flying past! Can't believe it's been two weeks since the last CofC challenge!

This time over at Linda's we are watercoloring and you really need to go see what the Curiosity Crew has done with this challenge! Yep! We've gone back to our kindergarten days and are coloring. But with Distress! And you know by now that I can't tell you HOW we do it. You gotta go to Tim's and get your own copy of his fabulous book so you too can do these wonderful techniques! Speaking of Tim, he and Mario have put together a wonderful gift box for one lucky player. And The Funkie Junkie is providing a shopping spree for another lucky player.

I decided to do Valentine's Day with some traditional and non-traditional colors. And with CHA happening last week and all of the Ranger designers in the house at the Convention Center in Aneheim, CA, I decided to pay homage to all with this challenge. So there is a little of Dina, Dyan, Tim and Wendy (in alphabetical order!) on my tag. I used Dyan's Spray Inks for my base. Then I used some Wendy Translucent Embossing Paste thru Tim's Hearts stencil. Dina's Collaged Hearts stamps using the  Distress watercolor technique and a rogue,  Roc Nicholas Stacked Love stamp also done in the Distress watercolor technique. A few Chit-Chat stickers (highlighted with Diamond Stickles!), an enameled tag with remnant rubs (I "borrowed" Candy's technique and scratched away some of the parts of the remnant rubs before I rubbed them on the enameled tag) and some black Fude Ball highlighting around the hearts complete my tag.

Sue...your tag is very cool! Love the watercolor technique you used on this! I also love the non traditional Valentine colors. Don't you love that scratch technique on rub ons that Seth taught? Such a simple yet pretty creative way to change the look of your rub ons. Thanks for sharing your art with us at CC3C. <3 Candy
