Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT - Sketch

Happy Tuesday everyone!  It's Ladybug Crafts Ink Totally Ladybug Tuesday and that means that we have a new challenge posted for you over at Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog.  Our lovely ladybug Michele chose the challenge this week and she asked us to work a sketch for our projects.  Here's my interpretation of Michele's sketch...now, I did have to turn it so I hope that's OK Michele!

I watercolored my image using my Distress Inks.  This was such a nice break from my Prismacolor pencils that I've been using lately.  I've added pearls, Glamour Dust, metallic pens, and Fluffy Stuff to my cupcakes.  This is the first time I have worked with Fluffy Stuff and I love it!  Thanks, Kerry, for sending it to me!  I used Glossy Accents on the wagon wheels and the cherry stem.  I've used white floss to add the bows to her hair and to tie the little punch tag onto my ribbon.  I bought these Doodlebug Design cherry brads quite awhile back and finally got to use one of them...yay!  My papers are Doodlebug Design.  I love their bright, cheery papers and I think they go so well with cute images like this Cupcake Cutie!

Now, be sure to stop by the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog to see what the lovely ladybugs have created.  I hope you find time to join in our challenge this week...there's a chance to win a prize!  Thanks for stopping by.

Gorgeous colouring as ever - think I need a tutorial lol. I love the little tag tied on the ribbon, and the little bows on the hair. The papers are perfect for the cupcake stamps - have not long received my first one so might have to ink it up for this challenge Hel x

This card is just full of tempting gorgeousness, Anita! Love it!

So how do you watercolour with distress inks? Do you add the ink on first then use a wet brush?
