Me............ yes ME! so go check out what I have on offer :)

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Colouring medium (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Well for a long time I would have said distress inks then I tried Spectrum Noir Pens
and loved them but....
I always go back to the distress inks... they are so versatile,
you can blend as many of you already know but did you know you could water colour with them too?  I bet you do...
so here is my card water coloured cut out and layered up.

heres a different view

Tuesday Throwdown - #335 - Add Dimension
