Distress Ink Tutorial Part 2

Thanks for all your lovely comments on Part 1 of this Tutorial on the post below, here is the final installment, not such a long one this time!!!

Colouring the Spoon

The first thing to do is image where the light would hit the spoon this gives your colouring depth,
I have chosen the top of the spoon and the middle, as in all the previous colouring you start by laying down a layer of ink on the image, Tea Dye and Old Paper have been used for the spoon.

Spread your ink with small circular strokes, remembering to clean your brush as you go, it should end up looking like this.


Lay down a thin line of Frayed Burlap to the hairline next to the scarf and the face.

Remove all traces of ink from you brush and very carefully with small strokes spread the ink out leaving a light area between the top and bottom hairline

Now add just the smallest amount of ink to both areas and around the edge of the hair near the face

Here is how it should look when you have completed all your colouring.

This final step may be difficult to see on the photo but it really important to make your image stand out, using Old Photo ink (the smallest amount possible on the brush) just draw a tiny line around the outline of the face hair, apron and spoon. Then pick up a small amount of Worn Lipstick mixed with Tea Dye and so the same on the Dress, Shoes and Scarf

And Finally the finished card.

I have distress the lovely Magnolia Paper and used Worn Lipstick around the edge, the lush pink papers are Bo Bunny from The Hobby House, and all the roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I have also used the most stunning cream lace that I bought from Tab at Tabby Crafts. Hope you like this and have found the tutorial helpful. Enjoy your Sunday we have the most glorious sunny day here, bright and crisp just how I like it

Thanks for looking
Jacqui xx

Jacqui, your card is beautiful; love the pinks. I just took a Copics class and then came across your blog with painting techniques that are so amazing. You are an artist and I can dream about that world - so glad you have a blog that allows me to gander into that beautiful sphere. I love all the talent there is out there - isn't it just grand? *sigh*
