Distressing, With Copics?

Hi bloggers, I know I have gone a little bit mad blogging today.  I am definitely on track with my resolutions then aren't I?  Anyway..... don't you just looooove the look of artwork that's been coloured using distress inks?  I have recently learnt that this is referred to as "Scandinavian Style".  Well apparently you can achieve this look using copics.  Yes, you have heard it correctly and if you would like to know how to do it check out Suzanne J Dean's you tube tutorial on how to do it.  Guarantee you will love it.  Now the whole tutorial carries over 4 video's so make sure you see them all.

Well I was inspired and thought I would give it a try.  So here is my interpretation:

Not quite perfect, I think I need more practice but not bad for a first try I think.  I don't have all the pen's that Suzanne uses in her tutorial so I am having to experiment to find the right colours to achieve the desired effect. I think the face and arm are a little dark but perhaps I will do better next time.  Give it a go though it's always great to try something new.  Till next time.  Happy Stampin. :-)
