Painting with Distress inks


Well the last card put here was using the top portion of a stamp that had been purchased for a specific use and so decided to play about and use it as intended.  The original idea was to sponge in backgrounds but was playing with the two new colours in house here by Tim Holtz and decided to use them with a brush,  water, and a thick watercolour paper.  It is actually too thick to use on a card, so will find some thinner type next time at the art store.

This is the end result, with the image stamped in the Abandoned Coral on the left side of an edged ivory stock layered on black.  The second colour is the Cracked Pistachio.  

The next colour was not in stock when we hit that store last month, so maybe by the time we get there next the newest will all be in stock.  Love using these inks.

All stock for this is Gina K and it is a 5 x 7 again.


You can see in the posting below just how much of the stamp was actually used in it.   Not much.    :)
