Use a good quality smooth watercolour paper to stamp your image onto using and archival ink pad
Lay your selected distress marker colour down on the mat. I'll give you a complete list of pens used at the end! Spritz a little water onto your SplodgeAway Mat.
Before laying down any colour always use a clean damp brush to paint over the area you are wanting to paint before adding an colour. This will prevent you from getting harsh lines.
Secondly ALWAYS work on different areas to allow the colours to dry ie don't try and colour the face and the hair at the same time otherwise the colours will bleed and turn to mud!!
When you begin try not to go in too dark with your ink. Allow the colours to bleed and blend. The SplodgeAway Mat is fantastic for this type of work as the ink does not pool and run. You can pick ink up and blend on the mat without the colours running into each other. It's also great for when you want to dry brush.
The SplodgeAway Mat does not cause the ink to dry out so your palette stays fresh meaning that you can go back and darken areas and add shadows as it dries out.

The finished card was put together. I dry embossed some Easy Ink Card with a Splodge A Mask. Broken China DI was used to blend and highlight the embossed section of the card. The flowers were some I had left over from the Floral Mirror I did on a previous post and the sentiment is a Clarity Stamp I'm using in my next class.
