Watercolouring with Ranger Distress Oxide Reinkers

Thanks so much for stopping by! Today’s post is part of the Watercolour Wishes blog hop for Scrap’N Stamp.

I wanted to think outside the watercolour pan (if you will) to see what other types of mediums I could use to create a watercolour look with supplies that you might have already in your stash. I opened my ink drawer and spotted my Distress Oxide Reinkers and wondered what would happen if I used those like liquid watercolours….Then I remembered a fun technique I used to use when I was an Educational Assistant at a special needs school. I ran up to my kitchen and found some disposable cups that were left over from our block party, grabbed my dish soap and my reusable Starbucks straw and well…..you will have to watch the video to see this crazy process unfold! I will tell you the results were unexpectedly cool! I will link to all the materials used below as well as a complete list with links to all the Design Team Members participating in this hop.

  1. Thanks for showing all the different techniques. I am hanging out with my grandson’s this weekend and the “painting with bubbles” is the perfect activity to share with them. 🙂
