Sweet Sugar Cube

I got a delivery of THE BEST watercolour paper ever and had to dig my distress inks out to have a play and the verdict?  It’s beyond the best, it really is.  See, I’m not a watercolourer.  I’m way too heavy handed and end up having to try and lift off some of the colour and then I get pilling or staining.  Then I get in a hissy fit and it goes in the bin.  Not any more, I’m so darn stoked (small things amuse small minds lol).  Link to the paper and all the other Noor products are in the linky pics at the end of the post.

I used the following re-inkers:-
Iced Spruce for the shading around the mice, Black Soot for the mice, Tumbled Glass for the tea cup & saucer, Vintage Photo for the Tea.

I went a bit cray-cray with the gesso Smile
