Distress Ink Pens

Morning, morning morning to you all....

So all has been quiet on my blog for a few days as we have been away.  We spent a really fab week in the Lake District staying in a cottage in Ambleside just 50 yards from Lake Windermere.  The weather wasn't too bad either.  On my previous post I mentioned the couple of days that we spent with my parents which was really lovely too.  
If you want to see what we got up to then you can hop over to Mikes blog where he has done a daily blog post...if you haven't got time to read it all then if nothing else there are some fab photos.

I managed to do some colouring while we were away and started to play with the Distress Ink Pens that I have had for a long time now and haven't really seen the light of day.

After a few images I really have to say that I love them!

I stamped the images with Archival Ink and used Daler~Rowney Bockingford Watercolour Paper 140lb 300gsm
With this paper you can actually do the direct to paper technique and add colour to the image and then use a watercolour brush to spread/blend the colour out.  I personally prefer this technique as it is the same as using Polychromo pencils directly onto the image and blending with Sansador

Hopefully before I am back to the grind stone on Monday I will have a few cards to show you.

Have a good day and I will hopefully be back tomorrow with a card.
