Coloring with Distress Inks! :)

Hi Everyone,
Hussena here again to share with you a card for the inspiration for Crafter's Corner # 6 -Stamping!....For my card today I have stamped the flowers and the butterfly and colored it using Distress Inks....This is one of the most commonly used techniques using Distress inks ..The coloring was done using Tim Holtz Blending Tool by directly picking the colors form the ink pad and dabbing it over the stamped area...Here you don't have to be careful while coloring because you know that any color which goes out of line will be fussy -cut...The distress inks are very vibrant and the colors really do pop up beautifully once they dry as these are water -based inks..There are many more techniques which can be done using Distress Inks as these are really very versatile inks and they come in 36 beautiful shades ...These inks are really a MUST -HAVE for any new crafter..There are so many possibilities with these inks and we at Crafter's Corner will be discussing about the various use of Distress Inks in our future posts/tutorials..So do keep a look ..Okay , having said that now here's a look at my card :-
