I was a lucky winner of Tim Holtz' Mini Distress Inks, so I wanted to make something using them. I ought to and will use them more. Here's my entry.
Products used: Mini Distress Inks--Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Frayed Burlap and Walnut, water color paper and pen, card blank, Distress tool by Ranger and Stamps by Stampin' Up and Art Impressions.
I stamped images and sentiment in Archival Ink. I tapped the Mini Distress Ink pad on my craft sheet and spritzed with water. The panel was pressed down into the puddle, removed and dried with a heat gun. Then I painted the hen and shadow with a water color pen and Distress Inks. I distressed the panel edges with a Distress Tool and applied walnut ink direct to edges. Glued panel onto card blank.
I love the colors of the Distress Inks--so vivid, and they make great watercolors.What I love most about using water color is you never know what you're going to end up with!
