Distress Inks ~ Twinkling H20s: A Substitution Guide

Hi there! This is Jeanette from Canada and today I wanted to share a little chart that I made that gives  a quick substitution guide comparing Distress Inks to Twinkling H20s.
I often use my H20s over copic coloring but I also use them as the only coloring medium; and I love the soft look and subtle shimmer. They add more depth to your coloration and that little something extra special to your project.
I need to add a small disclaimer :) I don’t have all full range of Distress Inks and so that is why some are missing. I also do not have all the Twinkling H20s (but I do have most). So, the comparisons were made with what I actually own.
As you will see mentioned in my chart, these are not always exact substitutions but are fairly close. I find that the Distress Inks are more vintage in tone; a little grayer whereas the H20s are more pure in color and of course; they twinkle.
Whiff of Joy has an amazing collection of Twinkling H20s as well as the wonderful water tank brushes that I use. You will find them all by clicking on the icons below:

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find this little guide helpful!
Hugs Jeanette
