First, choose 3 colours that work well together. Then, using the lightest colour first, randomly rub the ink over your paper. Watercolour paper works best with this technique, but Bazzill will work as well. I used a Watercolour pad, but you can also use individual sheets. Then take your medium colour and randomly rub the ink over the paper. And finally your darkest colour. Now, take a mister and spray your paper. You might want to spray the back as well, so the paper doesn’t buckle as much. Now using a foam brush, or Ranger’s Cut ‘n’ Dry foam, blend the colours, working the lighter into the darker. You can still add more ink once your paper is wet. When you are happy, let your paper dry completely. Then you can stamp on top of your original background!!
