Distress Ink Stamping - Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Make it Colorful

Today I am sharing two cards (separate post for the second card) created using Distress Ink Stamping along with water to make an ink blended background.    First up is a card created with blues and brown distress ink.    I used Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon and Gathered Twigs.   I used a stamp from Stampendous called Butterfly Trio.     I inked up the stamp with the Distress inks and spritzed with water to get the ink moving.    Then I stamped the image on watercolor paper.    I actually stamped two impressions. The image below is the second generation of the stamp.   I spritzed with water and stamped on watercolor paper and then stamped.  Spritzed with water and stamped again to get a lighter impression and used for the card below.    I saved the initial image for another card.    I used some more distress ink and water and then flicked the card with some ink splatter.   I added some Heidi Swap Gold Color Shine to add some sparkle.
