I really enjoy visiting blogs of European cardmakers and have always admired their way of coloring images. Most of them use Tim Holtz Distress inks to watercolor.. Now, there is an artist in me somewhere and I thought that I should try to use Copics to create this look.. And I did!! I had SO MUCH fun coloring these Tilda images!! In fact, this is the only way I want to color from now on, hehehe.. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this look!!! Did I say that I LOVE it!! hahaha

This is just awesome!!!!!
Would love to take a class, but unfortunately I live in The Netherlands, yeah, in Europe *lol*
Coloring with distress inks is really cool to do... you also should try this!
It really isn't that much work compared to working with copics I think, but I just loooooove my copics (plus Derwent coloursoft).
Really would have taken your class!
Good luck with it!

Irina, these are beautiful! Love how soft the results are. I'm trying to hone my use of Copics and am currently taking an online class. Wish I lived in your neck of the woods so I could take your class, too ;D
