Lovely Tilda with flowers!

Oh, I had a blast with this one, at last I've learnt how to colour with the Aqua Markers. They are not difficult to use, I'm just a bit slow, lol! I found them easiest to use with an ordinary brush for water colouring, thanks for the tip Brenda! I just scribbled with the pens at an acrylic block and picked the colours from it with the brush and when I was done I wiped off the colours from the block with a damp cloth. The colours are easy to blend to get the tones you want, so a 12 pack goes a long way.

The photo proved to be more difficult, we have a glorious sunshine today and the Stickles are reflecting it no matter how I try and the dots on the papers don't want to show, they are really nice IRL. No bigger problems over here, just small issues!
