Well done to all our new recruits on Wednesday night. You did a great job on your first Distress Ink cards. And here are the photos to prove it!
Thank you to Kay for her beginner's demo - exploring stamping, distressing edges and the basics of matting and layering.
Michelle demonstrated a double resist technique, first stamping and embossing plain card. Then adding colour distress ink. Then stamping and embossing again, before finally adding a dark colour distress ink. Very effective results! Click here for a tutorial.
- stamping an image with distress inks and either spritzing or blending the colour with a wet paintbrush
- inking up an acrylic block then spritzing the block with water and stamping
- inking up card with distress inks then spritzing a stamp with water and stamping to create a watermark image (didn't get any piccies!)
