INSPIRE




I tried my hand at water coloring with Ranger Distressing inks and then following with the inks and a dry brush for deep shadows. I have a lot to learn about this, but have been wanting to try this method.
Flowers are all by Prima.  PP's are by American Crafts.  Doily from Walmart, sentiment from my stash.  Offray ribbons and Pearl accents.  Thans for stopping by today.  Hugs to you all.

What a great first try at watercoloring with Distress Inks Peggy. Wow.! I tried to have a go at it a few nights ago but was bitterly disappointed with my efforts and immediately threw it in the bin. I hust love the look of Tilda's colored in this method, so maybe I will just have to keep trying it. TFS
