My attempt at DI...

Good afternoon to all in blogland..
Before I get onto my card I just want to thank you for stopping by my blog and for all the comments you all leave me... I look forward to the time of day I get chance to sit with a cuppa and read all the lovley comments you leave... I am still really enjoying the life in blogland, you are all so so talented and creative I enjoy visiting all your blogs even if I dont always get chance to leave comments.
Right now, yesterday I told you that I have been practicing painting with distress inks.  I have posted a few previous attempts with bears/fur but never managed to do any people/skin.. My first couple of attempts ended up in the bin as I think I over worked the ink and ended up looking dull and smudgy...but this card is the first one I was fairly happy with, what do you think? Any tips for me??
I have used a gorgeous Tilda... Coloured with DI and perfect pearls added to the necklace and bracelet...with a bit of white pen for her cheeks.
DP's are Dovercraft. Both ribbons are from Crafty Ribbons.. I added poinsetta dies layered with card candi in the middle.. A preprinted sentiment from stash and more card candi in top corner.
I love the softness of this card and the papers are beautiful.. Hope you like...
And have enjoyed visiting my blog today
Enjoy the rest of your day.
Hugs Kelly x

I'm the last one who can advise on colouring in Kelly, I can't do it for toffee, hence my inkiness. But when I really have to I find the distress inks blend quite nicely.

It's a very pretty card anyhow and the colouring in looks great.

Hi Kelly...lovely Tilda card...really pretty papers too...I had the same problem with DI' me, there is something about Tattered Rose that just wont blend...I gave up in the end and went back to Copics and
