Distress inks coloring tutorial for beginner

Hello my dear friends,
I am very excited to show you my very first distress inks coloring tutorial for beginner. I wish to apologize that I took so long to post this tutorial because I have mixed up the photos and I have a very hard time to make them in to pictures files.
My english is very poor so that I just can use very basic and simple english to write down my coloring experince. These are the steps I used to color my Tilda. I am NOT a coloring expert and I just want to share what I do with you:-)

OK, some people asked me why I choose distress inks not copic?
I have some reason, the first thing is, because it's cheaper compare to Copic, secondly, it's easy to use:-))
If you have any questions that you are not clear, you can email me, I will try to answer if I can.:-))
::Please click the pictures to make it more clearer to read::
If you want to link my tutorial to your site, please let me know beforehand, thank you very much.

I hope that you will enjoy my tutorial and try your own!

Edit: I received many emails regarding watercoloring papers that I use, well, it's from Norway and it's a gift from my friend Helle, I really don't know the brand of the papers. But there has many brand like Canson, Fabrino, Arches out there, try googled them and if possible get the "hot pressed" one:-)

Very nice tutorial. I've tried using distress ink once so far, and it was not successful, so maybe I'll give it another go. Thanks again! Leah Ann

You did excellent presentations! As for your English, I live near a big US city and I can't understand half what they say! I would rather talk with you any day. Thank you for such a wonderful art show.
