Never tried "Distress Lifting" but here goes...

Challenge number four is a new technique for me.

I thought I'd give it a try as I didn't have to buy anything.
Had the Distress pads and pens, the watercolor brushes and the water... before the drought takes it all!

Once again I was trying to think cool so out came the Tim Holtz Christmas Tree stamp and die set.
Used my markers to color in the tree and stamp it on water color paper.
Then used my watercolor brushes to smear the ink around.
Allowing it to dry, I gently "pulled" some of the color off with the brush.
Love the light and dark tones in the tree.
The gold strip along the side was made by cutting the strip and rubbing the pad over it.
Once it was dry I went in to pull some color off.
So glad I tried a new technique.
How about you?
Trying and challenges or new techniques?
