Hi Friends,

Its Anita here with my first video tutorial (I'm very very nervous) on colouring with distress markers. This month our challenge features on stamping with an emphasis on markers. So I decided to go for colouring with markers and that too my favourite stamped image --Magnolia Tilda with Daisy.
There are innumerable videos and tutorials on this and so that made me even more nervous.
So please be patient and bear with me. The video is a bit---NO VERY SHAKY!!!! And I,ve tried to do my best. But please, PLEASE!!! excuse me!!! This is my first attempt!!

A little about Distress Markers----Colouring is a cakewalk with Distress Markers even for a novice, because, all you need is to fill the colours and spread with a water brush pen or normal brush. The effect is remarkable as these are water based. Also since, its in pen form, you have control on how much colour to apply.
My experience says---use very little to get more effect--i.e, just a bit of colour spreads so well giving a beautiful hue.
Also you can build up shading by starting with the lightest shade and going on to the darkest, giving a depth to your image.

So please watch this video. Its just my way of colouring. I wanted to share it with you all. Thanks for watching. I'll do a better job next time. I would like to thank a very dear crafter  Ujjwal Gupta  She patiently taught me how to make a video tutorial in The Windows Movie Maker . Thanks Ujjwal!!!
