Project 52 weeks of ATC's - Week 45

(Version française ici)

Hello everyone,

This week, I challenge you to use the Distress watercolor technique.

Here is my example:

You will need:

  • White glossy cardstock (photo quality)
  • Distress Ink pads, your choice of colors
  • Mini Mister filled with water
  • A craft sheet (Ranger or Tattered Angels)
Steps:
  • Stamp Distress ink colors directly onto the craft sheet, overlapping the colors slightly. NOTE: Distress ink pads are designed so that the colors won’t cross-contaminate, so the order isn’t all that important.
  • Using the Mini Mister, mist the colors until big droplets are formed.
  • Place the cardstock – glossy side down – into the wet ink.
  •  Lift cardstock carefully, set aside and let dry.
  • If you find there are too many white spots, you can repeat the previous step as many times as required.
  •  You can dye a few pieces of cardstock without adding ink, the result will get lighter with each new sheet.
  • If you drag the paper through the wet ink rather than placing it down, you will get a different effect. However, don’t go back and forth too much or the color will get muddy.
Now, IT'S YOUR TURN!

Don't forget to come show us your artwork on the store forum.
