Colouring with Distress Inks
Part 2 Hair

Colouring with Distress Inks Part 2 will show you how to achieve some really good results for any of your stamped, or digital, images hair

We all want to make beautiful cards to send to family and friends,  and sometimes the effect we want can be achieved quite easily using your Distress Inks.

There are lots of colours in these inks and so it is easy to achieve the look you want whether for characters, florals or landscapes.

Colouring with Distress Inks Part 2 will cover the hair and show you how to get some lovely effects in yours

This series of videos has been made to show you how to get the most from this product.

Using them to watercolour is perhaps one of the easiest ways to get good results as it is such a gentle medium to use.

You will find more tips in the section on Watercolouring

Just by altering the blend, using different colours for your hair,  will make your character blonde, brunette or redhead, and thereby altering the whole  look of the card.

The other two parts to the series are
Skin Tones 

Just to remind you that I have used a Number 2 Sable Hair brush, and it was not expensive, and the water colour card from Crafters Companion.

Water brushes are also a good choice, just be sure to decant the ink from the pads first, so as not to flood the ink pad with water.

With a limited palette of  Aged Mahogany,  Tea Dye,  Walnut Stain, Tattered Rose and Forest Moss I have produced this very pretty effect on the card I have made.

The stamped image I have used in these videos is from the SWALK collection and these are available also from Crafters Companion.

But you can try this technique with any images that you have 
There are some lovely characters to choose from and you are sure to find lots of them that you really like.

So there you have the short tutorial on  Colouring with Distress Inks Part 2  Hair,  and the link to the other two parts is at the top of the page.

This is such a relaxing technique to use ... so just enjoy the process and then you will create some wonderful toppers for all your cards.

You could get a similar type of look with other inks but be sure to check that they are water based.
