I do hope you didn't develop a migraine, they can be awful, I know. And that your dinner menu came together - personally I prefer the veggies to the meat! Anyway, you asked me on my blog how I watercoloured with the Distress inks. I use both the ink pads and the reinkers. The reinkers tend to be much more intense and need to be watered down for paler colours. If I'm using an ink pad I either dab it onto a shiny surface such as an acrylic block then pick up the colour with a damp paint brush, or I pick it up straight from the pad. Using the Ranger Distress inks means the colour stays true so no fading of brown to green! I also water-colour with the Ranger Adirondack pads, but with these you can just press the lid of the pad onto the felt and use that as a palette. I hope that helps.
