"Is It Watercolor or Distress Inks...Can You Tell?"

Hello Friends, Visitors, Viewers and Followers.
It's another great day to do something good for someone else in your neighborhood.
What do you have in mind?   Grass cutting...washing windows...fixing the fence...weeding the flower or vegetable garden...taking someone to the grocery store...cooking a meal... cleaning the house or just a room in the house...calling to check up on the individual.
Whatever you  do, your kindness will not go unnoticed.  Don't expect the person to repay you...just do it from the love in your heart.  Make someone's day better than they expected it to be.
Now, for the question I'm asking...can you tell if a piece of paper has been water colored or was distress inks  used to color it?
Take a look at this picture and see if you can tell?
***this is two different cards....I took the photo of both cards side by side so you can decide which is water colored and which is distressed with inks.
Ready for the reveal?

FLY
cardstock: Neenah white, Recollection dark green and black; Ranger water color paper

stamps used: Tim Holtz Visual Artistry and Recollection Mixed Medial
Challenge Entry: wordartwednesday.blogspot.com Challenge Weeks #234-235 - Anything Goes

Believe
cardstock: Neenah white, Recollection dark green and black; Ranger water color paper
stamps used: My Art C stamps and Stampology  Fancy Flourishes
Sticker: Studio 112 spotted canary

 
Here is the technique used:
On "FLY" the paper was water colored...on "Believe" the technique was with Tim Holtz's distress inks
 I know my iPad didn't do justice to the images but the original shows the distress inks being more vibrant than the water colors.  
However, this little lady loves both techniques.  
Watercolor or distressing....what's in your craft room?

Sending you a hug and LOVE,
Lois
