Distress Ink Bleed Coloring

Hello friends & welcome to Heartfelt  inspiration post  Distress Ink Bleed Coloring_pinterest
I have made a card with Distress ink bleed technique for today's inspiration... 
I love watercoloring but sometimes I don't have the time or I want a little different look for my images so I use this technique. Distress inks are water reactive inks and they do fun things when they react with water.
I love this technique because it is fun, quick and easy!
This technique is particularly easy if you use MISTI or any other stamp positioning tool but if you don't have one then you can use an acrylic block also but then it will be difficult to use rubber stamp for this technique. However if you are using a photopolymer / clear stamp then it can be done.

In short you stamp the image with any distress ink or you can also use few different colors like I have used Picked RaspberrySeedless Preserves and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks and stamp on watercolor cardstock. I have used my MISTI to stamp my images. Now spray it with water which will spread the ink creating beautiful patterns... If you think the results are lighter then simply repeat the above step again. The more water you spray the more the colors will move and the colors will be lighter and vice-versa. Now the image will be blurred so we have to stamp the image again to get a defined image. At this point you can either use black ink or the same colored inks used earlier depending on the end result that you want. You can also heat emboss it after stamping which also looks very beautiful. For this image I have used WOW Black Glint Embossing Powder so my image glitters and looks very pretty which is hard to capture in pictures.
