Distressed Watercolor Background

Life Changes – Make Everyday Count

by Terre Fry

Blue distressed card featuring the sentiment "Life Changes make everyday count" made by Terre Fry using Memento Inks.

This year has been all about changes for me and my family, we moved to a new state, my little girl started a new school and I looked for a new job. Through all of these changes I have kept this thought in my head…Make Everyday Count!

Step 1

Use a waterbrush to pick up some Memento Bahama Blue ink and brush onto your card base front. Let it dry and sand it to create a distressed look.
