Bride Tilda Distress ink + Copic coloring

Good morning, a short post today.
I've never tried painting with distress ink, but since going through so many wonderful bloggers' blogs and saw their wonderful painting job, I decided to play a little with it and see what it would turn out. Also, I've never tried using water color paper before. This image was stamped on a 140lb water color paper.

I bought this Bride Tilda from Magnolia-licious a while ago, but never get a free moment to use it. Today I picked her as my practice and was hoping I am able to get some vintage theme somehow. Hehe, thank you Bride Tilda for letting me to try you!!

I tried to take a pictures on each set of colors I used to share with you today. The Distress Ink I used for this practice is "Walnet Stain".

This is my finished image coloring. As you see, that I painted over the outlines, which happens to me often, because I tend to use the lightest color to brush over top and blend the colors, so for not caring about painting it over the image outline since I usually cut out the images for my projects.

Skin tone: E11, E00, E000, Distress ink

Outline - W00, W1, W5, Distress Ink

Hair & Crown- YR24, YR23, Y17, Y00

Wedding Gown - BG93, W5, W1, W00

Bouquet - R59, R14, R02, G99, G21

Ok, that's all I have to share with you today and hope you like this post :o) Thank you for stopping by today and hope to see you again soon!

Hi Cabio,
Your first attempt looks great to me. I have been scared to give the distress coloring a try so I am proud of you! You are a fantastic artist so you will have this mastered in no time so don't give up it looks great to me!

Beautifully done :0)I gather you can get better distress colouring effects by using the refill bottles from tim holtz, just what I have learned from some of my fellow bloggers who distress, I haven't had a go myself yet :0)

Well I like it and think you did really well but have never used distress inks myself. I'm too in love with my Copics but maybe one day. I have gotten a bit interested in them however, Copics were a learned medium too. Maybe I'll give it a try one day cuz it looks great!

Your coloring is beautiful! I am trying to get back into card making and have never tried the distress inks~I just might have to give them a try. I still have a lot to learn just with my copics though:)
