Grungy Steampunk Fairy

I'm sure you've seen those fabulous images coloured using Distress Inks online with their amazingly gorgeous pastel colours or the occassional beautiful brights - I have and I fell in love.  Only problem for me was what do you do when you're not after a bright or pastel coloured image - what do you do to achieve a darker result.  In the clip below I show you how to colour an image using Distress Inks and achieve a darker resulting image - it's all about layering!

I used - Walnut Stain, Black Soot, Tea Dye, Dusty Concord, Tattered Rose and Milled Lavender to colour this wonderful image from Sweet Pea Stamps, Jewelled Fairy by Teresa Sherman.
