Tilda with winding flowers

I dug the Distress Markers out again yesterday (although I used the reinkers alongside the markers and prefer the finish of combining the two together, so I think that in future I will be using the markers to enhance the reinkers.  I love the fine detail achieved with the markers, especially for creases/folds in clothes and the hair.  The links to the products used are at the end of the post.

I wish I could source the little chrysanths here in the UK, I picked these up when I was taken on an amazing craft shopping tour by three lovely people in the US earlier this year.  Numptie here only picked up a few packs Sad smile
