I had a couple of mornings off work this week because my son David was sick and when I saw these links on Godelieve's blog, I really wanted to experiment with distress inks again, now I had more time.
These are the little tag cards I made.
This one is done by sponging on shabby shutters (green), placing a mask (Tim Holtz) on the bottom of the tag and then sponging over the top with broken china (blue) to achieve this kind of teal color.
This one is done by sponging on two different inks and then flicking on water from a paint brush to get the splotchy effect. I love this technique.
The third one is made using pink and brown distress inks on the tag. Then ink up your chosen stamp with versamark, spray it lightly with water and then stamp on the distressed tag. Nice effect I think.
Nice to know some of the basic techniques with distress inks.
