For You

Good evening to all my lovely friends and  blog followers. My card today is the first Tiddly Inks image I have used. I've admired them on a couple of blogs and decided recently to buy a couple of digi's and this is the first.
 As it was a digi image I usually colour them with Copics and  Promarkers as I always find them difficult to colour with inktense pencils or distress inks so I have been trying a few methods to stop the printer ink from bleeding.  I decided once I got it sorted to write a tutorial and  this is on my Tutorial Page if you want to take a look. I'm sure there are other methods out there but this works for me. This is my first image painted with inktense pencils using this method and  I'm quite pleased with the results.
