Distress Ink Tutorial

This is such a fun technique to play with that I thought I would show how easy it is to do! You can use any color combos to make stunning effects. Have fun playing!!!

The supplies you'll need is a Ranger craft sheet, three colors of distress ink, perfect pearls, a paint brush and a spray bottle of water.

First take your inks and press them directly onto your craft sheet. You can use as many or as few colors as you like. I like to use three.

Next you will dip your dry brush into some perfect pearls.

Then you will sprinkle the perfect pearls on top of your ink colors. You can see that here.
Next is to spray the inks and perfect pearls with water.

Now take your white cardstock and run through. You will need to press it and pick it up and look at it. Just keep running it through the colors you want to get the right effect.
This is what it will look like once you lift it up. Now wait for it to dry and have some fun playing with your beautiful work!!!

I love this added twist to something I do all the time. Never added pearlex before. Thanks for making it look so easy.
