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)
  • 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.

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