Grungy Monday 08 : Watercolour
Back to Grungy Monday on a Thursday! But what a wonderful week I had with our little grandson (and his Mum and Dad of course!).
For this week's technique, Linda took us back to one of Tim Holtz blog posts back in September 2008. This watercolour technique is one of my favourite techniques ...... however ..... I have only ever done it with Distress Inks and never with Adirondack Dye Ink. Click the link here to be taken direct to Tim Holtz's blog and watch him take you step by step through the technique.
I only have one pad of Adirondack Dye Ink (how sad is that!) - Cranberry - which was a bit dark and juicy to use on its own. So I thought I'd have a play with some Stampin Up Dye Inks I recently purchased to go with it. This wonderfully "easy" technique is deceptively difficult when working with bright dye inks instead of the muted distress inks - judging by all my practice pieces!
Do click the clink here for Linda's blog and take a look at the stunning examples posted by Sue, Ellen and Linda herself, together with everyone's amazing interpretations of the technique.
I am struggling to leave comments on blogs at the moment - I thought it was just me but I see that other's are having problems too. Hopefully this will be sorted out soon as there are so many wonderful examples of this technique. Thank you all for sharing such wonderful work.
