Distress ink colouring with Water, Stencils and Stamps

Today, for my Craft Adda post, I have two cards which I made using water and Tim Holtz distress inks.

For the first card, I smooshed some distress inks onto a home made stencil ( I cut out some numbers out of a clear plastic sheet) and spritzed it with a lot of water. I then place my card stock onto the stencil and let it pick up the colours. A
After it dried, I stamped the sentiment (from Kaisercraft)with black ink.
A quick and easy birthday card!

For this card, I used a cling stamp from Hero Arts. I smooshed the colour directly onto the stamp and spritzed it with a lot of water. I then place a piece of card stock over it and picked up the colours. Its so easy and fun...you get a different effect every time! 
I then finished off the card by stamping the sentiment in black and adding some sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by! 
Have a great evening!
