  1. Love this
    Do you do any tutorials ? I am just starting out using distress inks

    1. Hi Lisa, This post here is about as close as I have to a tutorial. I use the refill inks in little plastic pots and a very fine 3/0 brush with a cup of water for my colouring. There are many videos on you tube you can see that do similar colouring to me like Camilla - - or you can look at the distress classes over at Kit and Clowder by guest teacher Tracy Payne - . The most important piece of advice I can give you is use a good watercolour paper. There are many preferences, I prefer Arches but you can also look for a Langton or Canson - Hot press is the best as it is the smoothest :) Have fun!!!

  2. Just beautiful hun, her hair is perfect!
    Hugs Shell xx
