30 Coloring Challenge January 31

Another card for the 30 Coloring Challenge with Kathy Racoosin.
Practicing some more watercolouring with Distress Oxide inks. I like how you can obtain variations in one shade of colour by adding more water and picking up water with paper towel. Then you can add a second layer of the same colour because by the time you put down the first layer the ink has started to oxidize on your craft mat so the shade becomes a bit deeper. Once your watercoloured panel started to dry you can flick more water on to it and pick it up with paper towel to remove even more colour. Your results just keep changing.


Thanks for coming by today.

Hi Tracey, that is such a fabulous set for coloring. I am in awe of your use of the DIO for watercoloring. Such pretty results.

What a wonderful effect from the DOX water colouring, Tracey ... the sense of depth on these lovely blooms is fabulous! Hugs, Anita :)
