Distressed at Distress Inks

We have some temporary glitches at Lili's Little Fairies as our leader Jacqui is offline with computer problems at the moment.  I'd made this card for this week's challenge, but we're going to have a wee break until she's returned, so as I'd scheduled this post, I'm sharing my card anyway.

I've been practising my painting with distress inks again.  I still think I need to keep practising to get better with the inks, but I've now got some paint brushes that I'm happier with, and also some good watercolour paper, so it's really now just down to my ability. I can't blame my results on poor quality materials now, can I!

You really are doing well with the inks, Netty.....they give such a lovely, soft effect which looks really good on the water colour paper....beautifully done, my girl!
