How to watercolor with Stampin Up ink refills

Rubbing Alcohol drops over wet background and allowed to dry
both photos came from this source 
 http://www.watercolorpainting.com/watercolor-tutorials.htm
scrunch op some plastic wrap and allow it to dry then remove the wrap and see the great pattern it left.

My favorite color combinations are:
Taken with Teal, Lovely Lilac and Brilliant blue
Old Olive and Rose Red
Summer Sun, Really Rust and Cameo Coral

This is my absolute favorite technique.
Use Night of Navy ink all by itself  then before you allow it to dry sprinkle a little Crushed or ground salt over it as it dries. It leaves little stars or snowflakes in your background!
It's beautiful.
