Faux Vellum Effect with Distress Oxide Inks

Hello friends & welcome to another Heartfelt  inspiration post

I have made a card with Faux Vellum effect for today's inspiration... 

I have used Distress Oxide inks for this technique.
These are special dye and pigment ink fusion which react with water to create oxidized effect and we are going to use this very unique property for today's technique.

I have inked the background using Cracked PistachioLucky Clover Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Inks and then used my Koi Waterbrush filled with clear water to lift up the ink.
You can also use a simple paintbrush with clean water for this step but I find that a waterbrush is faster and easier to use for this technique.
