The challenge is... Drips Technique!
You can see the original tutorial HERE

This easy technique is one you will use over and over. Try it with different mediums and colors for one of a kind backgrounds.

For this technique you will need:

watercolor paper
ink refills, watercolors or acrylic paints
an eyedropper (or a paintbrush)
a palette or cups for mixing
paper towels 

Put a drop or two of ink into a palette or small cups. Add water to thin. The amount of water you use will vary depending on your inks I used Ranger Distress Oxide reinkers for my project but any paint that can be thinned with water will work. I used one drop of reinker to 20 drops of water.

Use you eyedropper to pick up your puddle of thinned ink. Pick up your paper and drip onto your watercolor paper. Tilt your paper to get your drip going the direction you want. I used Spiced Marmalade for this step.


Continue dripping until you get the look you want. Keep a paper towel handy to sop up any excess ink. Let dry (or use a heat tool) before the next color. As you can see with my samples I tilted my paper in different directions on one and went more straight on the other.

Repeat with your second color. I used Fired Brick on the left sample and Worn Lipstick on the right.

I added a 3rd color to each. Worn Lipstick on the right sample and Fired Brick on the left.

Here is a closer look.

Using my MISTI I stamped the  I finished my card by sponging the edges with Vintage Photo ink.

Supplies used:
Stamps: Technique Junkies Stand Tall
MISTI stamp tool
watercolor paper
eye dropper
sponge (edges)

Have a great day! Jeanne
