My first attempt at colouring with my distress inks!!!

Hello peeps!!!!

Firstly a warning....if you don't already get the magnlia ink mag...don't get it!!!!!! romfl!!! it has shown me how many things I NEED!!! no seriously, it is a gorgeous magazine. Whilst drooling over my magnolia ink mag I saw some tilda's coloured in with distress inks and decided to give it a go ( please bear in mind I have a whole 2 distress inks!!!! tattered rose and frayed burlap and my first attempt is probably a bit pants!!!) but to be honest after coouring this one, they were a super 2 colours for me to choose and o together really nicely, I love brown and pink.

Oh and of course a bit of martha was invloved too ( another warning must be issued here....don't give in to martha's..... you will always NEED more!!!!) ooh she cuts like butter and looks so cute though!!!!! lol!!!!!
So here's my effort!!! I also highlighted tilda a bit with my at you spicas, I tried my best to get it in the picture but the light is a bit dark here even in the daytime at the moment.

Awwww, she's cute!! another one of my stamp club swap ones but I will own her one day I am sure!!!! I love how her socks turned out.The backing paper is another sheet from my 'stroke it only' collection but the colours went together so nicely and the little cupids were cute!!!

Right, off for a cuppa now!!! thank you for popping in on me!! hugs
