Distress Ink two ways!!!


Who doesn't love Distress ink? Well if you are new to Distress inks maybe this will give you some ideas of how you can use them. I'm going to show you Distress two ways as a coloring medium and as your primary ink to stamp with. Most of these products are available in the Right at Home shop.. but you'll want to hurry before they are gone. 


On my first card I stamped the images using the Distress ink minis. These are great little 1" pads and you can also get Distress in full size pads as well. I stamped the images onto some watercolor paper and then I smooshed the pad onto a clear block and using a slightly damp paint brush I colored the images in with the ink. 


This is a great way to create a No line look or to keep your outline soft. And by using the Distress ink to stamp your images as you move the water over the outline it softens the edges. I'm using  a super cute set from Mama Elephant called Woodland Gifts. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of white card stock using the Walnut ink from Lawn Fawn and trimmed it into a banner shape. I added some grey enamel dots from YNS that were on my desk as well. 


For my second card I stamped the images in VersaFine Black ink on some watercolor paper and colored them in with Distress ink. I used the Markers and scribbled them on the clear block creating a palette. If you have the ink pads though these work the same way. My outline is bold and you can get your images a little darker this was as well without loosing any detail. I cute the images out after they were dried and added them to a circle of Watercolor paper that I die cut using the My Favorite Things stitched circle dies. 


This card has a lot of height..lol I created a white card base for both cards and added some Pebbled Patter Papers from the Fun in the Sun and Happy Day 6x6 pads. The sentiment is stamped with some VersaFine Black ink onto a strip of white and trimmed into a banner shape. 

This fun set from Mama Elephant and the Distress Ink minis are available in the Right at Home Shop.. You'll want to hurry and grab your set Fast they're only a few left in stock. You can also get many other fun items in the Right at Home shop as well! I used some of the latest Distress Ink colors for my backgrounds.. Blueprint Sketch, Hickory Smoke and Twisted Citron



The Sketch is from this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge..
