Distress Inks Colouring and Grunge Photo Framing




Okay.. so this is my first image which I coloured with my new Distress inks. Do you like it?? YAY!! I just couldn't go to sleep without trying them on.. after stroking them quite a few times after Mr.Postie brought them in their new home :))

I decided to work on this HAnglar beauty after I decided on the papers I was going to use. It still has to be worked upon.. the background maybe.. amd then make the card..but I wanted to show it to you. I'm really having a blast with these inks.. I do wish I can colour with them everyday. I am thinking about making a tutorial if you're interested.. showing you the steps it took me to get it this way. I will see what response I'll get to this.. and move from there. Obviously this will be for those who are new to this technique, and would want to try them out for yourself. All the lovely Distress Ink Pads and Re-inkers can be purchased here, and they are cooler than Copics (many of the experts who tried both say).

Also I used this image to learn to frame my photos with Grunge frames. These are so cool, and give your photos another look. I found lovely tutorials at Kristine's Blog here.. I can tell you she's super talented, and a computer whizz for me!! She's soo good!! I need some practise.. but I managed to do it! YAY!!

Have a good day mt dear friend!! Blessings to you and your loved ones! :))

Thanks for looking

That is some really great colouring, Rosette! You've done some super shading!
And that grunge frame is cool. I've tried Kristine's tutorial as well. It's fun!

Have a nice day!

Hugs, Kristin :)

Yes please! Do a tutorial on how to color with Distress Ink. I own some but I have no idea how to do what you did. You did an awesome job Rosette.

She's just too cute! Love, adore her! And the frame is perfect for her! I'd love to see your tutorial since I'm just learning with them myself.
