I love to watercolor! My favourite technique is mixing Tims Distress inks with twinkling H2O's. Love the shine! I usually use the pads onto a plastic sheet and pick up with a brush, but sometimes I use the reinkers or the markers too. I also have inktense pencils and other coloring supplies, but distress inks and twinks are the best ♥
