Distress Inks Video Tutorial Part I

Well, I have had intentions of making this video for a while now, but just got around to working out some details.  I had to split it into smaller videos so this first one is on skin tones.  I will try and get the other done by tomorrow.   I hope you enjoy it and if you have any more questions after you watch, please email me.  Please forgive me being an  amateur!! My son was trying to help me make it better, but I just didn't listen haha!  Rambo is busy barking in the background at the squirrels outside in the tree. haha!

My image I used is a Lili of the Valley image called "Rosie Posey".

Part I - Skin Tones with Distress Inks

This video from blogger is extremely fuzzy.  I put one on YouTube and it is a little clearer and it is HERE!

Thank you for watching!

Hugs, Dena

    Very, very interesting and informative, watched parts 1 and 2 and now waiting for the next one.
    Do you use the ink pads or the re-inkers?
    I only colour with DI's and I do it totally differently, so I'm going to try and do it your way next time.
