Hi Everyone, Chari here today to share with you a little tutorial about watercoloring with your distress inks & markers. Distress inks are one of my favorite supplies but I only recently started watercoloring with them. In this video I will use the inks as well as the markers so no matter which you have in your stash you can use these techniques too.
I will apologize now for the beginning of my video, my phone did some funny stuff to the first few minutes of my recording…but we’re just going to call it super cool effects! 🙂
Here is a shot of the finished card. I only colored 2 flowers because I knew I would be cutting them off and wanted to waste as little as possible. The thing I like best about watercoloring is it leaves room for imperfections, and being the perfectionist that I am I need a medium that can be forgiving of my mistakes at times. It’s also easy to add and take away color with watercolor which is a nice feature as well (more wiggle room for correcting mistakes).
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and it has inspired you to get out your favorite distress inks and some water and play!
