Pink By Design - Coloring An Image

So glad you stopped by today! :) It's tip/technique day over at Pink By Design! The technique I played with was using Distress Inks to color an image!

Since I am waiting for StazOn re-inker to come in the mail and my ink pad is dry, I used a versamark ink pad with some black embossing powder for my image. It's important to use an ink that will not smear when combined with water.... Next, I stamped my Distress Ink pad on an acrylic block. I used a water paintbrush to pick up the ink off the acrylic block then colored my image. Distress Inks blend perfectly when combined with water, making it easy to get a shaded look. 

For this project I also used some twine from The Twinery, paper from Recollections, a Peachy Keen stamp, scalloped circle Spellbinder die, EK success border punch and a sentiment from the Christmas Wishes stamp set. 

I am celebrating Christmas by having a giveaway!!! For a chance to win a set of Pink By Design stamps (and some other goodies!!) check out THIS post!!
