Watercolor Tilda

I have not updated my blog for a little bit due to surgery that I had last week.  I just never found myself in the same room as my computer and couldn't update easily on my iPad.  Well, things are getting back to normal in the house, so I am posting a few things today. 

The Tilda with a suitcase on this card was done by watercoloring with Tim Holtz distress inks.  I have been taking a class online to learn this technique.  I have to say that it is so easy and so much fun.  I had never used an aqua painter before this, and just love it.  No dipping a brush into water all of the time.  I stamped the distress inks onto wax paper and then used the aqua painter to color the image.  I used Stampin Up watercolor paper to stamp the image on. I like using the dotted background.  I have done this with copic markers as well.  I hope that you like what I have done here.


  1. So Beautiful Meg. I have not tried to paint this way but I might try it..Hope you are feeling better..Hugs..loz

  2. Where online are you taking the class. I took a Tim Holtz class at our local store called Ink Boot Camp. I loved the watercolor and alcohol techniques and would like to get more details about it. Your cards are just beautiful. How do you make the background cutouts?

  3. this is lovely Meg. I must give the Tim Holtz a try. I have heaps of watercolour pencils, paints and crayons but love trying something new.

    Love your work.
