Playing with ink and water!

This week I was playing around with my Ranger Inks and a watercolor pencil. I wan’t sure exactly what would become of it, but it didn’t come out too terribly 🙂

I stamped my trees with brushed corduroy distress ink, then used a green watercolor pencil for the grass. After brushing out the colors a bit with water, I added a little bit of fired brick distress ink on my trees also.

Next, I dried the images and cut them out, then inked the edges of each square with the brushed corduroy. It was a fun experiment! You can see the details below in the video 🙂


Fun card using Distress Crackle Paint

When I got my shipment of distress crackle paint last week, there just happened to be one with no seal on it, so guess what? Yep, can’t let someone else have it if it’s “defective” ;), so I just had to try it out. What fun! No mess, just brush it on your paper and let it do all the work. It’s pretty thick paint, but you can easily thin it with a little bit of water and it will still crackle. What I like about it is that you can ink it, emboss on it, stamp on it, whatever strikes your fancy. So here’s my little card I made with crackle paint as an accent. Don’t forget to leave me a comment…always love to know what you think!
