That looks like a combination of basic compositing on several clips of ink footage. It could be multiple masks with roughen edges applied, it could be footage of splatters used as track mattes, it could be a lot of different very basic things. All used to reveal footage of ink either soaking into paper or being dropped in water.

And since it's in the GenArts demo reel, I'm guessing there's a healthy dose of Sapphire Distort, or WarpBubble, or WarpDrops, or WarpMagnify, or WarpWaves to enhance that look where the image spreads out as if it were a 3D droplet being absorbed into the paper.

If you don't have Sapphire, you achieve a similar effect with a little work and the Displacement map effect.
