DSCF9601DSCF9600Playing some more with Distress inks for watercoloring. A Craftsy class online with Deepti Malik starts with all the basics about watercoloring. I am looking forward to further lessons on more detailed watercoloring

Watercolor abstracts with Distress Inks


Again inspiration from Online card class and Kristina


Inspired by Laura Bassen

imageLaura Bassen makes plaid backgrounds with inks and a whole lot of patience.. Since I am camping and have limited supplies with me, this is my take on her plaid background.

Background inspired by Kristina Werner

In today’s class there are many more ideas. This one uses multiple similar shapes in different sizes and inks. I didn’t have white ink to do it properly but it is still a fun card startimage
