Colour with distress inks

The craft barn's challenge is to water colour with distress inks and you you how I love that :) and the tutorial was a way I hadn't tried before so I've had a play .
To much water on this one and the ink seeped under the embossing, so will probably cut this cut at a later date because I love the way the colours have blended

A bit heavey handed with the reinker here but love the different tones it produced

Three colours used on this one

Clear embossed on black ink, think it's come out ok

This have to be the best for me .
They are all work in progress from a days play so you might get to see one or 2 finished one day :)
Thanks for taking the time to look xxx
