This is a card I made for the challenge at this week. The Cue Card is "Distress" to inspire our creations. This is my first time working with color paints on watercolor paper when making a card. I used a paint brush to create the strokes of colors, when it dried I used a nail file on the coarse side and rubbed it across the watercolor paint for depth. I wrote and printed the sentiment on my Explore and added a puffy Turtle embellishment from a "Kids" pack by Recollections at Michael's. I used a CTMH distress tool around the edges of the paper for a distressed look. Oops!! Sorry for the bad photo. It was late at night, trying to beat the deadline and  did not have good lighting.

Thank you for following TurtleBug's Trail!

  1. Wow, your first try and it looks this great!!!! Way to go! So clever to use a nail file too, a great example that one doesn't need all those fancy tools! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CASology... hope to see you again next week!
