Colouring with Distress Markers

Hi

Recently I decided to challenge myself and try out a new colouring medium.  So, with that in mind I purchased some Distress Markers and set to work.  Here's my first creation using an image coloured with said Distress Markers !!!!


And here's a close up of the coloured image (I added some Stickles Glitter Glue to the snowflakes).


I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Totally Gorgeous - Anything Goes with Glitter
No Matter Which Challenge - Christmas
Dutch Magnolia Chickies - Christmas Card
Allsorts Challenge - Advent
Addicted to Stamps Challenge - Christmastime


RECIPE

Image - Tilda with Ribbon Heart Scarf

Papers - From GCD Joyful Peace Paper Pad
Charm, Ribbon and Brad - All from my stash
Tim Holtz Alterations "Snow Flurries" On The Edge Die

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you like it.
