Fill the small brush tip Aqua Painter with water.
Place the white rectangle on some Grid Paper to protect your work surface.
Tip: Make sure you don’t have anything you don’t want to get inky near by!
Squeeze the lid of the Purple Posy Ink Pad. Open the pad, but leave the lid exposed. Squeeze the Aqua Painter to get some water in the lid. Stir the water and ink together with the brush of the Aqua Painter. If needed, add more ink to the pad lid using the ink refill. Hold the inky brush tip a couple of inches over the white rectangle and flick the brush with your finger to make drops of inky water fall onto the cardstock. Repeat until you have the coverage you want, getting more inky water on the brush as needed. Set aside to allow to dry.
Tip: Clean the brush tip of the Aqua Painter by scribbling on Grid Paper until no more color is coming off or run the tip under some running water until it is clear.
