Cards Using Distress Ink Techniques

I have been making quite a few cards recently using distress ink watercolour techniques. I really enjoy it and the effects are always quite spectacular. Distress Inks: Antique Linen, Fired Brick and Peeled Paint

Resist Technique: white embossing powder used as a resist against Broken China Distress Ins.
Glimmer Mist Mask, Distress Inks Spiced Marmalade, Shabby Shutters and Broken China, misted with Perfect Pearls.
Ranger Mask, Distress Inks Broken China, Shabby Shutters and Walnut Stain again misted with Perfect Pearls.
Broken China background overstamped with Versamark image sprayed with water.
This is my favourite technique - watercolour stamping. The stamp (my favourite at the moment!) was inked with Shabby Shutters, "touched" with Broken China and then sprayed with Perfect Pearls before stamping on card. Once dry the text was overstamped with Antique Linen and the edges blurred with Shabby Shutters.
