Ages ago I saw a video by Jennifer McGuire where she talked about "Distress ink lifting". Today I tried it out with my tulip stamp set from Altenew.
First you heat emboss your image.
Then you saturate your paper with distress ink. The bolder color the
better. I took the ink pad directly to the paper to get it really wet. Then I worked with an ink blending tool as well.
I wanted to participate in the Color Throwdown challenge where
the colors this time were yellow, green and blue so I chose Squeezed
After the paper is loaded with ink, you "lift" the ink with a
wet brush. If you want, you can then add additional color. I added some
Mowed Lawn to get that green. To get some blue in there I tied some blue
bakers twine around and finished off with a sentiment stamped in black
and some pearl stickers.
