This week, I challenge you to use the Distress watercolor technique.
Here is my example:
- White glossy cardstock (photo quality)
- Distress Ink pads, your choice of colors
- Mini Mister filled with water
- A craft sheet (Ranger or Tattered Angels)
- 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!
