Distress Ink Tutorial: Coloring Black and White Images

Hello everyone! Ann here :)

Today I'll be sharing with you a distress ink tutorial on how to color black and white images.  There are different approaches to this and mine is just one of them.  Some like to use Black Soot the entire time, but I find that using some Pumice Stone and Old Paper really creates a more dramatic look.  Feel free to download and save the PDF version of this tutorial by clicking on this page: Whiff of Joy Distress Ink Tutorial: Coloring Black and White Images then click on the "Download" button.

I've used one of the images from the newest Whiff of Joy City Girls II release called Graduation Willow.  This is such a great graduation stamp! Make sure to visit the Whiff of Joy store to see the rest of the wonderful new images by Elisabeth Bell.
