Melanie,

I have tried everything but cannot get any white color to show on my card. I am using a water brush.Do I need to use a certain type of.ink? The moisture just sinks into the card, but no white color is showing. What am I doing wrong?

Love this technique,  and tried it today. Came out very pretty. I believe the card base size should be changed to 11 x 4 1/4 for the tall card. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi Jill, I do always include the supply info on my blog post but have asked Gina to please add the list to the video page as well.  Thanks for writing.  :)  Measurements, too.  They are:

Kraft base: 4 1/4" x 8 1/2", scored at 5 1/2"
Black Onyx mat: 4" X 5 1/4"
Kraft mat: 3 3/4" x 5"

Hi Iwana, Thank for writing.  Actually all of the Gina L colored inks ARE waterbased so blend away and watercolor!  The Gina K.  Black Onyx is the only one that is not waterbased, which allows you to stamp crisp line art images and then color with waterbased media  without the image bleeding.  If you use colored inks other than Gina K, that still holds pretty true, colored inks are waterbased and black is not.  Hope this helps!
