I’ve been stalking Jill Foster on the Penny Black Youtube Channel for her P, B & J series. One of the techniques that she used was painting one layer water color pieces using Distress Ink Reinkers. That didn’t work out so well for me, but I did get 2 cards out of it. They didn’t turn out the way I expected, but I made 2 cards out of them. Here is Penny Black Rose Take One.
Penny Black Rose Take 1 Card Recipe
I started out by cutting out water color card stock larger than I needed for a card base. I used 1 1/2″ painters tape to mask off the center of the card. Mental Note – get 1″ painters tape for the next card. Using Archival Ink in a brown I stamped the Red Blush stamp. Jill used a waterproof ink in a light gray which I do not have. Mental Note – get waterproof ink in light gray. I didn’t have the large selection of Tim Holtz Distress Ink reindeers, but I do have Festive Berries, Walnut Stain and Wilted Violet. Since red is my favorite color, I started out using the Festive Berries reinker. It came out pretty thick so it didn’t work as expected. The other 2 reinkers came out more liquidy. For the colors I didn’t have in the reinkers, I used the Distress Ink pads. As is the norm, the technique isn’t as easy as it looks. But I haven’t given up. I will try again. Anyhoo, I painted the leaves in green and the background in Salty Ocean. I inked around the edges in Salty Ocean and also Antique Linen. It’s not exactly what I as expecting, but it isn’t horrible.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today. Tune in tomorrow for Penny Black Rose Take Two.
Have a great day and enjoy the journey and some chocolate.
