Today I am doing a tutorial with Distress Inks on the new Ranger Specialty Stamping paper!
Here is what the finished product looks like:
For this card I used lighter colored inks. I used Scattered Straw, Broken China, and Victorian Velvet Distress Inks. If you use darker the colors, then you don't need to do as much sponging. I start out with sponging the Scattered Straw in three different areas, but leave some white space. Then I used Victorian Velvet on some of the white space, then finally sponging the Broken China on the remaining open areas. If I feel it needs more blending or to add more color I go back and add more. Once the color is how I want it to look, then I remove the tape. The last thing, I do is spritz the paper with water. As the water dries, it leaves bleached spots over the image.
Even though I love this technique with the Silhouette stamps, it also looks nice with images that you color. Here is a sample of the same technique with the new Baby stamp. The image with colored with Distress Markers. This time the image was spritzed with a fine mist, creating a little different texture to the card. Now it's your turn to give this a try!
