Asian Butterfly

The fun continues with Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals line of powdered dye inks.  These are gorgeous dye inks that have been dried into powder form.  The background on this one used two of them . . .

After smearing on some Distress inks and a yellow Gelato, I wet the cardstock and immediately used a small dry brush to pick up a little of the powder and tap it on.  Patterns form and you can leave them this way or brush them around to distribute the color.  The color intensity can be light or saturated, depending on how much water you use.  You can brush the water on first, or you can spray mist afterwards.  Either way, you'll probably never have a failure with these lovely powders!
