  2. I'm just having a lovely catch up Ann after a few weeks off. I'm enjoying looking at everyone's gorgeous makes, there is such a variety of work on my rounds!
    I've tried colouring with distress inks here and there (and Inktense too) but I always go back to alcohol markers. I must persevere as I love the soft effect. You've done a smashing job on this and the monochrome is perfect.
