Distress and Rust

What a way to get rid of the Monday blues!
Inspired by a catologue I got from my local art shop, I've been trying to recreate the effect of oxidisation or 'rusting' using watercolour inks and ink pads.  I love working with inks and generally getting messy  and this is my first attempt at something bigger than a greeting card or ATC. It is actually quite 'freeing' to just let the inks find their place and then work with the result. I have used some acrylic stamps, Ranger distress ink, rough  straw ribbon, Glossy Accents and paper from a pack from the same art shop.

Shame about the shadow on the photo because the colours work well together. Really pleased with this and can't wait to try this again.

Thanks for stopping by and taking time to read my blog.
