January 2022 Monthly Mix Challenge


Happy New Year and welcome back to another Gina K. Designs challenge! This month, I am your challenge hostess and I have a fun challenge for you!

Did you know that our dye ink is water reactive? If you spritz a blended background with water, you get a pretty water droplet effect. You can also mix it with water and use it as watercolor paint. And you can ink a solid stamp image and spritz it before you stamp to create another watercolored look!

My challenge for you is to use our ink with water to create a card. Spritz your background, watercolor your image or spritz your image using our ink to create your work of art. It’s fun and easy and you will love the effects of our water reactive dye ink!


My Challenge Card

For my card, I blended Applemint ink with Turquoise Sea ink. Once dry, I spritzed it with water and then blotted it up with a paper towel. Once dry, I stamped my images with Black Onyx dye ink.

I made this card way back in 2020 in this live video.

Stamp sets used:

Fruit of the Season


Dies used:

Master Layouts 1

Wishes Word Die

I used regular Gina K. Designs white layering weight white card stock and once I spritzed the water, I used my heat tool to dry it.
