Simon Says Monday Challenge "Ought to use this more"I used to use this product a lot when I did a lot of Pen & ink, then being a faddy crafter, I deserted them and got a new fave product.
Compendium of Curiosities 3 page 39 Challenge
Page 39 of Tim's New book is WATERCOLOURING with a certain DISTRESS product and learns the reader a beyond the basics technique. if you have no skills page 39 with give you some, go buy the book, you wont regret it.
This is how I use Distress products for watercolouring, have to say as usual I jumped straight in and didn't read the brief!
DISTRESS WATERCOLOURING using Distress Re-Inkers, forgot how good they were and I will be doing some more today in 8x8 size for my journal. so check back soon
This is my offering Luna Fantasy
A offering that hopefully demonstrates that Tim Holtz Distress products can go beyond rubber stamps and stand alone just with the quality of the product itself.
In the picture below you will see everything that I have used to create this scene, just one drip of each. I have used many types of artist quality inks previously but I can say for translucent painting DISTESS RE-INKERS ARE THE BEST
I have used Liquitex, AV and Windsor & Newton but none have produced the vibrancy that Distress do
This one went in the bin, at this point I discovered that my beloved FUDE BALL ROLLERBALL was not waterproof on Acrylic 300lbs paper! Though it is on copier paper, manila cardstock. Strange.
