F is for Faux Washi Paper

This is another faux technique I've done before, but wanted to try with different ink.
Place tissue paper on plastic to protect your work surface. Mist the tissue with water. Drop on ink in colors of your choice. I decided to try Distress Ink re-inkers because the colors are nice and intense.
Spread the ink to cover the tissue, it's okay to blend the colors.
Drop on gold ink and spread over the surface as desired.
The colors in this technique or so intense you can get several papers from this sheet. Mist the paper again and lay another tissue over and press down to pick up the colors. Carefully lift up and set aside to dry. Continue misting and adding additional tissue paper as desired. Each sheet will get lighter.
Stamp over the paper with images of your choice. I used lightening black StazOn ink.
