Panda Birthday

Today's card is a birthday card for my auntie so it's packed with flowers and soft pastel colours.  I've picked a cute panda bear from Lili of the Valley and as usual I've watercoloured my image using DI reinkers.  At As You Like It Challenge, we're asking what your favourite colouring medium is this week.  I have tried Twinkling H2Os, Promarkers, Copics, Derwent Pencils, Zig Watercolour pens, but my favourite by a long road is my trusty DI Reinkers.  The colours are so intense (the phrase 'a little goes a long way' was invented for these inks) and although they're called 'distress' inks, there are some really bright tones in my favourite colours so there is a shade for every need.

Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:

  • Panda: Hickory Smoke, Black Soot
  • Grass: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Rustic Wilderness, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
  • Stick: Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain
  • Sky: Tumbled Glass
  • Purples: Villainous Potion
