After several attempts to get the colouring right, even though i did heat set the ink i still had a problem with their they look like they've made a mistake with the fake tan!!....and we have a problem with streaks!!! I do love to colour my images with Distress Inks, but was getting frustrated with the outcome, so in this instance I reverted to my watercolour pencils.
