Playing with Distress Ink Color Combos

I took a little time this weekend to play with some Distress Ink combos.  I have some strips of watercolor paper and mixed media paper from past projects and I just had to put them to good use.  These strips won't be wasted, they'll eventually make their way into cards.  Here are a few of the color combos that came out of this project.


Distress Ink Color Combo #1:
Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar, and Broken China

Distress Ink Color Combo #2:
Seedless Preserves, Victorian Velvet, Antique Linen and misted with Perfect Pearls in the color Perfect Pearl

Distress Ink Color Combo #3:
Black Soot, Chipped Saphire, Seedless Preserves, Victorian Velvet, and Antique Linen

Distress Ink Color Combo #4:
Tattered Rose, Scattered Straw, and Wild Honey

Distress Ink Color Combo #5:
Blueprint Sketch, Stormy Sky, and Salty Ocean

Distress Ink Color Combo #6:
Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey, Dried Marigold, Tattered Rose, and misted with Perfect Pearls in the color Perfect Pearl

These scraps were so fun to create color combos with.  I'll be turning all of these into cards this week, so come back soon!

    1. This is basic distress ink techniques of blending colors on paper and then splattering with water. Tim Holtz has a number of great blog posts on techniques as well as Live videos on Facebook.
