Last month I worked on a layout using some Kraftin' Kimmie stamps which I coloured using distress inks as watercolours. Yes, you read that right, distress inks can be used as watercolours!! Have a look at these not so scary, too cute halloween images!!:
I used Black Soot and Marmalade Inks on all the images. The technique is very simple:
- Press a Distress Ink pad onto an acrylic block or other slick surface.
- Spray a corner of the ink with water, the more water you use, the more dilute the colour.
- Load a small paint brush with wet ink and paint as desired onto a stamped image.
Thanks for looking and have a colourful day!!
