Project Destroy Craft Room


So let me preface this by saying that I am covered in ink and my once clean craft room looks like it got hit by my 4 year old. I was stamping some Wish RAK images tonight and decided to try something new. So I watercolored! Be gentle.
This is another tribute to the fallen set, Best of Cluck, which is on the Stampin Up retiring list. I just got this set, have wanted it forever, and now it's going away!! (sob)
Now, keep in mind that I do not have the necessary tools to watercolor, but I found a little brush in my son's desk, got out my squirt bottle, and went to work! I used my So Saffron and Chocolate Chip reinkers, and a tiny bit of Really Rust from the inkpad lid. I distressed, sponged, pierced, and did some faux stitching with my Chocolate Chip Stampin Write marker, and then overstamped my Linen BG lightly over the main panel. I still have a hard time using my Hodgepodge Hardware, but I stuck some on there and tied on some fibers, and away I went! Whaddya think?
Stamps: Weathered BG, Best of Cluck, Linen BG
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Palette Hybrid Noir, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Really Rust
Cardstock: So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Watercolor Paper
Accessories: Hodgepodge Hardware, Fibers, Tim Holtz Distressing Tool, Paper Piercer, Pop Dots
