Distress Markers

Hi everyone, I have tried my hand at Distress Markers this week and I must say I am now totally hooked, they are brilliant, like all the professional mediums for colouring they take a bit of getting used to, but then when you have the hang of how much to use, layering and blending, they are a wow!!

This is my first three attempts

I have used a good quality water colour paper  
You do have to be careful with the amount of water you use on your brush, if you overload it you get a bit of a bleed problem, or as my 7 year likes to say, 'Mummy you coloured over the lines' :)

I love the sand effect i created on the Edwin one, I should have taken notes on which colours I used, I need to be more organised, I actually only intended to colour the Tilda with the flower, this was my first one, but i got a bit carried away and carried on to do the other two.

I hope to do a tutorial when I have some time,
Thank you for looking
