Distress Inks, Tube Watercolors, & Stamping
Jenifer Rzasa made this class look so easy.
We first practiced three different techniques – Using distress inks on the stamp then stamping it on paper and then using water to spread the color – like on the cat.
The second one was using the distress inks on the stamp, applying water, drying it and adding water on top of the image to give it some texture, and then using a pen for the details.
My favorite was inking the stamp, spraying it with water, then applying it to the paper. I used different colors of inks on this flower stamp.
I did the sample of the two stamps with distress inks – easy!
The first image was stamped with water proof ink, and the second one with Versamark and white embossing color. I like both ways, but coloring on the black image was my favorite.
Then, using watercolor tubes I did these two cards. I didn’t have any skyline stamps so I used a stencil and pencil to draw the buildings.
These two cards made me crazy, but I grew to like this one, especially after I added the splashes on top.
The second try is another stencil of a neighborhood and a heart, so I used Thinking of you card.
Hope you like – they are very different than I usually make.
