Victorian Lady

This pretty lady is stamped with archival black ink, and colored with my new Distress Ink markers. It's a learning curve for sure, and I've got some work to do, but I'm liking how they work.  They are best used on Watercolor paper...cold pressed for this image and die cut from
Spellbinders Ovals and the Oval floral die for it's background.
Hand rolled rose and Martha Stewart punched leaves.
What didn't show up in the photo is some diamond sparkles in her necklace and earings. Kinda reminds me of the Blue Heart necklace for the Titanic movie. Why Rose threw it in the ocean in the end, I'll never understand!

  3. Your Victorian lady is beautiful Laura and coloured to perfection with your distress markers. I confess I never used my for colouring in much, I tend to keep them for inking direct to stamp but must give colouring a go with them.
