I first stamped with Archival ink in black on watercolour paper and then used the Distress Markers to watercolour in the images. I absolutely love how these markers blend. I still really like my Tombows, but these are much softer colours and give a completely different look.
After colouring the images in I sponged on Distress Ink around the edges and tied on some Baker's Twine.
This week's challenge at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Blog is to create a background without using patterned papers. Check out the amazing samples the design team has put together!
