My very first Distress Coloring

Hello bloggers!

Today's post is more of an experiment... I always say that I admire other's people Distress Inks/Markers coloring, the cards those people make always seem so very delicate, mine on the contrary are bold with popping images and contrasting colors, I just HAVE to put several layers of Copics colors, because it always seems to me not enough :)

For the card I'm sharing with you today I colored one of the Magnolia stamps with Distress Markers. All the professionals among you, my dear readers, don't laugh and throw tomatoes my way :) hh
I know the hair didn't turn out good at all, and there's a splat of blue ink on Tilda's dress on the right side, and that the background is not "blended" enough.... Still I'm posting this, so that I could learn from my mistakes and compare the future colored images with the image on this card (I plan to practice once I have more time).

The close-ups:


That's it for today. If you have any useful tips concerning the distress inks coloring, I'll be more than happy to hear them.

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!
