First up - simple ink blending on watercolor paper. I used four colors of distress ink found below for my color palette. I blended over the ink 3 layers to get the bold color. I used Canson watercolor paper and the ink blends very well over the paper. No water was added.
Next up is Distress Ink blending with water and splatters to provide some more interest to the background. Ink blend your colors and then spray with a Distress sprayer to get little and bigger water droplets. Let the water sit on the paper about 30 secs and then lift up. Then spritz with a marker and Tim Holtz spritzer with some brown ink. Using the same stamp set, I created another ghostly halloween card.
My third card is blending many inks and using a stencil on top with water and ink sprayed with water.
Using several different inks in rainbow order will give blending in-between the inks with a new color. for example the blending between Squeezed Lemon and Tumbled Glass will give you a green color. This was also blended on watercolor yardstick and then using a stencil, spray the stencil with water and place onto the inked background. Dry and then put a darker ink (I used Hickory Smoke) on the stencil and spray with water. Then lay ink side down on the background and leave for 40-60 seconds. Lift up and dry the panel. You get a ghostly effect from the stencil. The stencil I used was a Tim Holtz Shatter stencil.
