Gertie Goosey

I am entering the Imagine That Progressive Challenge 13 - Gertie Goose.  I used the Tim Holtz Distress Markers to color the image.  I realized that while the colors matched the theme, I don't like these markers for coloring at all.  I feel like there is no control over the brush tip and the ink comes out at different flows.  They are ok for watercoloring stuff, but overall I don't love these.  Time to go back to my Copics!!  (I also wish I would have put the ribbon over to the left like a fourth of an inch!)

Harvest Medley

The card image is the From the Heart Stamps October Free Stamp of the Month called Harvest Medley.  I used my distress markers to color the image and a little bit of watered down Vintage Paper  for the background color.  I think I used a little bit too much water and the image was having a hard time adhering to the mat, so I had to use some Glossy Accents and heavy glass vases to get it to stick.  I am pleased with how it turned out!
