    1. Hi Jeannette, there is a Reel I made for Ellen Hutson showing how I did this but I am not sure if it has been released as yet… shouldn’t be too long. I do have a playlist at my Youtube channel sharing many different techniques for watercolouring and basically ‘dye’ inks can be substitued for many of them. and the best thing is that you don’t have to mix colours if you have the ink pad in the colour that you want lol. Hope this helps, here is the link for my playlist,

  1. GORGEOUS! I love all the “Mondo-s”! This will be coming home to me 🙂

  2. Loved the colours of the two cards. I always forget about using dye inks to watercolour, so thank you!
