Had the pleasure of spending the day at CUL on a class run by the very lovely & patient Kim Piggott. She was showing us the basic techniques of water colouring, using distress ink pads. We managed to do at least 2 samples each, as it was a long process trying to get it right(or as near as we could!) to Kim's sample!
I think I still have a long way to go, but practice makes perfect they say.....
300gm water colour paper; black Versafine ink pad; new Magnolia Tilda stamp
Inks: Antique Linen, Tattered Rose, Black Soot, Brushed Corduroy, Milled Lavender.
As I say, I still have a long way to go to get anywhere near Kim's standards, but I'll keep trying!
