Instructions

Hello there, crafty friends. It’s Cheiron Brandon back with another tutorial for you. This month I am thrilled to share a project with a brand new product that I have been loving, the new Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Pencils. Today I am going to share a fun project with you that allows us to create with these pencils in a multitude of ways. We will create a trio of ATCs with coloring, outlining, mark making, and splattering with the Distress Watercolor Pencils. 

 

 

Distress Watercolor Pencil ATCs Step 1 

Step 1: Gather up your supplies. You will want a set (or perhaps all 3) of Distress Watercolor Pencils, some Distress Watercolor Cardstock, and some stamps with a bold sentiment.

Step 2: Cut Distress Watercolor cardstock two 2 ½ x 3 ½ (ATC size) and gather up a few colors of Distress Ink. I used Fossilized Amber, Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade.
