Blog Design Team Color Throw Down Challenge- Snowflake Distress Ink Watercolor

Snowflake card, Distress Ink Painting Background Continuing our month long “color throw down challenge”, I have created a background using distress inks as watercolors in shades of pink and orange.

I am so thrilled to be a part of the Alumni Team at Maymay Made It. As a part of this team, we have to create projects using vintage stamp sets, which is so exciting and challenging at the same time!!!
