Using my distress markers

Hi all, well seems that time is speeding fast and from last Thursday don't seem to have stopped!
Went to a felt workshop with Sandra and what a laugh,its so addictive too. We both made felt roses and looking forward to the next one. Will add a pic to my next post as on my way out the door to work.
Yep went back to work Monday but at least its only part time til September!
Anyway had a go at following a distress marker tutorial yesterday and this is the result.




Thought I would start out simply and really enjoyed blending the colours on the coffee cup. Tutorial can be found Here
I used stampin up 'perfect blend' image stamped with archival ink and coloured using pumice stone, old paper and brushed corduroy distress markers. MFT graduated dots stencil and peeled paint distress ink pad for the background and that's it, one quick and fun card to make.
