I made some watercolors with some of my Distress Inks.
I made all these colors with only 2 ink pads. They were Peacock Feathers (blue) and Picked Raspberries (pink). I combined some different amounts of blue and pink to create purple or a darker pink depending on what I wanted.
I adhered the balloon with some foam dots. I also added some splatters from the watercolors I made.
You can see some of the dimension here in this photo.
