Doing More of What I Love


In case you haven't guessed, what I love is sloshing Distress Inks around.  My latest craze is painting flowers using Distress Re-inkers and a broad water brush.  Today's inspiration came from the current Inkspirations challenge photo:


I went a bit literal with it.  Just sloshed some ink on with the water brush, filled in the gaps, then drew some lines around the shapes using a Posca pen.

I'm also adding it to the CAS Watercolour Challenge - Summer - my hanging baskets have purple petunias in them.


And The Flower Challenge - Anything Goes
