Lucky Me Card

My World Plus You = Lucky Me and the Die~Namites Die
"Lovely Grass"!! 

Hi it's Peggy Lee here to share with you a simple but fun card,
I created to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day!!
I played with the amazing dies and water coloring with Distress inks....be sure
to read and follow to the end of the post....little tutorial to share.


I decided to play with the "Lovely Grass" Die...
since next week is Saint Patrick's Day!!

Lovely Grass

I used an embossing folder as the backdrop
for the lovely grass.


Adding texture to the die cut along with doodling with
a touch of pearl dots.


Tutorial
Here is how I colored my die cut piece.
I die cut with white card stock.
Dabbed some Distress Stain in Bundled Sage onto the whole die cut.


Grabbed a few Distress Inks in  Peeled Paint 
and 
Pine Needles
I pressed the ink pad straight down onto my mat,
added some water and started water coloring with the inks.


Whoola!!
I love the look of Distress inks and water!
Depths of color!!


Thanks for stopping bye today,
Peggy Lee
