A few of you have asked how I color my images, so here it is. My first Tutorial and it's on my favorite coloring technique...Distress Ink.
Some of my other favorite coloring technique includes: Prisma Color Pencil with Gamsol Oil, Prisma Watercolor Pencils, and Copic Markers.
But today I would like to share how I color with Distress Ink.
Materials I use:
- 140 lb. Cold Press Watercolor Paper
- Aqua Pens (large and small tip)
- Acrylic block
- StazOn Ink Pad
- Distress Ink Pads and Reinkers
Pick your favorite stamp, ink it up with StazOn ink and stamp the image on the watercolor paper.
I always use two or more color of the same shade to built my colors and I like to start with the lighter shade.
Fill your aqua pens with water and take a bit of color directly from the ink pad.
To blend the colors, work in circular motion with your water brush.
If too much ink is added to the image, you can remove some of the ink by adding water to the area
then simply dab with a dry paper towel to lift the ink off the paper.
Now here are the step by step tutorial on how I color my images.
Let's have some fun!

I hope you fine my tutorial helpful and useful.
