Tilda Chiquita Banana

I’ve posted this card on my Facebook this week. It’s the first card I made colored in Distress Inks. I do have to say I have enjoyed coloring with Distress inks but it does take patience and a heat gun to put all of  these together :)  Thru process and many mistakes I’ve made I’ve learned the important basics like using the correct brush and drying time (hence the heat gun) . The paper is important too however as I am still on the learning curve, I am still using average watercolor paper in 300gsm. I will eventually invest on good paper once I’ve got the techniques at bay. But in the meantime, I am having fun and loving the process which is super important :)
Doesn’t Tilda look like the lady in the Chiquita Banana commercials?
