Hi all, Jo here, I am super excited to be a guest here today. First of all, let me say what a fabulous release and am in love with the designs. Today I have tried something I have never done before, and water coloured with Distress Oxide ink refills. I have water coloured before with ink refills with dye inks, so colouring with this type of formulation was new to me.

Products Used:
Sketched Hibiscus Digital design
Lotus White Digital design
Distress Oxide Ink refills – salvaged patina, squeezed lemonade, pink flamingo & twisted citron
Aqua brush
Clear block
WOW! Embossing Powder – Summer Scoop Trios
Cardstock – White, black & watercolour cardstock
Altenew – Permanent black ink

Card 1

  1. Digital designs are printed with a laser jet printer on watercolour cardstock
  2. With Distress Oxide inks salvaged patina, squeezed lemonade, pink flamingo & twisted citron I dropped some of the ink on a clear stamping block
  3. I picked up the inks with an aqua brush and water coloured the printed panel
  4. I heat embossed a white cardstock panel with WOW! Embossing Powder Razzleberry embossing glitter from the Summer Scoops Trios.
  5. I mounted the watercolour panel on the heat embossed panel then mounted a side folding card base.
  6. To finish the card base I stamped a sentiment on a strip of white cardstock which is then foam mounted on.
