Positively Pampered and an Update on the DI Markers!!

UPDATE FIRST!!! I'm so excited!!! If you wet the watercolor paper first then use swiping motions where you want the color with the Distress Ink Markers, it blends!!! Yippeeeeee!!! Iwent back a second time for more concentration and it works!!! I am so glad I won't have to cancel my order and this will be a nice way to travel with my watercolors!!!   I'll do a little video on Sunday and show you the results and maybe it will help you decide about ordering them. Woo Hoo!!! Happy girl now!

  6. Absolutely gorgeous!! Love everything about your work.

  7. Good afternoon Dena,
    What a lovely card and yes you're right it couldn't be more girly really could it.
    I love the way you used the Parisian accents border and ribbon across the card, it gives the impression of a dedo rail across the middle of her bedroom wall. I don't know if that's what you were after, but I like it all the same.
    I think I have this paper, so I am going to look at it differently now. Up to now I have only used it for quite vintage or shabby chic cards but this has really opened my eyes. It is a perfect companion to those gorgeous WOC flowers and I am starting a collection of those. With this in mind and the waterbrush technique I have alot to be playing with this weekend. Thank you and have a good weekend everyone.
    Regards Linda

  12. Dear Dena,
    Thanks for all your "research" on the Distress Ink Markers. I have the whole set preordered but not yet recieved and I was worried that I would have to buy that expensive paper to use them. I'm so glad to hear that watercolour technique works! I'm much relieved and can stop regretting my order.
    Thanks so much for sharing all your information and of course for sharing all your truly amazing works of art!

  13. Absolutely gorgeous and girly, love it!

  15. I can't wait to see your video I need all the help I can get using Distress ink!
    Your card is so darn cute and I love love this image. Such pretty feminine paper which suits this image perfectly.
    Hugs Bonnie

  16. Well Dena your finished card is an ABSOLUTE beauty. So well done with all of your perseverance. YOU'RE Marvellous! I've not used these pens but I do have a large number of Aqua Markers and I find it very hard to work straight on the paper with them. They are better used on a tile and then picked up with a brush. Big hugs, Lesley

  17. A gorgeous card Dena! Lovely papers and a super cute LOTV image, your colouring of her is fantastic! hugs, Marlies
