Water Flicked Distress Inks


Using masked off areas to keep the inked area crisp, combined Chipped Sapphire and Salty Ocean Distress inks and water flicked then dried to create this simple card

Clean and Simple Distress Paint


Multiple colors of Distress Paint directly onto a stamp and spritzed with water. Love the blended colours

Embossed Distress Paint


I saw on Kristina Werner’s blog a variation of this idea. I put three colors of distress paints on my craft mat and sprayed with water then swiped ┬áthe card stock through. dried and repeated several times. Then I ran it through an embossing folder in the sizzix. Then highlighted the embossed circles with undiluted Distress Paint

Another Look at Distress Paints

This is Distress Paints directly onto Hero Art’s Leafy Vines stamp and lightly misted with water before stamping onto watercolor paper


This one is made with Distress Paints directly onto the same stamp and generously misted with water


Distress Paint Tag Card


A Perfect Day


This is my first attempt at using the new Distress Paints, the colors are so vibrant. I used watercolor paper and got quite a matte finish, I am going to go try now with a manilla card stock and see how it finishes
