Watercoloring with Distress Inks

Distress Inks Watercoloring

Oh what a fun day it has been! I rarely ever get the time to start AND finish a project in the same day, so it was nothing short of a miracle that this card got done within 5 hours!

I started with a Facebook Live and after giving everyone lunch was able to sit again, uninterrupted, to not only finish the coloring but also trim, mount, adhere and find a sentiment to go with this to make it a complete card. If I get nothing else done the rest of the week, I won't care. Lol!

At this moment, I don't have a preference for color pencils or distress inks -- both seem equally intense, richly pigmented and easy to work with. My next experiment will be with Karin Markers, so stay tuned!

For those of you who work with watercolors, do you have specific kinds you work with for florals? I'd love to know.
