AYLI (DT) Favourite Colouring Medium

Hello chaps, today sees the start of a new challenge over at
and our theme is Your Favourite Colouring Medium
(and purrleeease remember to tell us WHY it is your favourite)

I've tried just about everything - watercolour pencils, watercolour paints, ProMarkers, Copics, art pencils ..... but the one I feel most comfortable with and come back to time and time again are the Distress Inks (ReInkers) used as watercolours - they are such fun colours to work with and I love how you can create so much depth and tone with them - although as with most water based medium, they can be a little unpredictable at times, but that's half the fun!

So, I have used an older Stampavie image called "Being Together"
and of course, she has been painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
I have sponged the sky with Broken China Distress Ink and a home made stencil
Matting layers are from Your Next Stamp "Hugs & Kisses" and MFT "Watercolor Wash"
Sentiment is from MFT "Lots Of Hugs " sentiment stamp set

I hummed and haard about making her into a card, but instead have added her to a page of my memories book.

Looking forward to seeing you over at the challenge.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

So pretty - I love your sky! It's fun to use different medium I think - but ultimately we all return to our favourite - just because it's easier and it shows in what you create with it! xx
