Inky Vector Reveal

Hi I am currently doing a vector art based piece, in which I have en element that needs to seap out and where it leaks out the colour beneath changes.

Its fairly difficult to explain. I need a reveal mehod that is similar in style to some of my vector art images. I have some stock reveals, inky bleeds, and smoke elements that would all work as a track matte over the image that it would reveal to. However these organic elements are not what I wanted. I want it almost like the movement of an ink spill so it flows in smooth edged elements increasingly hitting areas and seaping together to fill the space.

I realise I could frame by frame animate a bezier mask to do what i need but i was wondering if anyone had any suggestions before I go ahead and animate the reveal using a mask. Any help will be appreciated. thanks guys

Post some examples, it may be easier to understand what you're after.

I can link you to my cargo:

The final panes of the storyboard roughly show you some idea, and the other image is of the style of my piece.

At this moment nothing comes to mind except what your already mentioned- animated shapes that you can use as track mattes.
You may want to experiment with a simple shape ( ink splatter like) that grows (with and easy ease out) to the edge of the frame and a distortion layer on top- mesh warp or bezier warp- to make it more organic. Precomp and use as track matte as well.
