Little soldier (my first distressed ink colouring)

Good morning everyone, Hope your all well, I bought this little image from Crafters kitchen along with another mo manning did. Jak lost a little relative to menengitis, so this was the image she was selling, the proceeds will go to finding outmore about the disease, my dads brother died of it too aged four so its a subject close to my heart. I hope you like him, May I thank Kim Piggot the little darling for helping me, with all sorts of things from paper type to whatever along the way bless her, this is my first attempt at distress inks and although its not very good im practising!!! loads of twinklets too. Hope you all have a lovely day and thanks so much for visiting it means a lot huggies from me xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

And just a little tip. Go visit DW, Lou`s boys are loose. They are so beautiful, I can`t wait to start playing with them. That lady did it again.
Wish you a great day.
Hugs Gunn :-D

You have gone and conquered the distress inks wonderfully!!! I tried distress inks on a digi and it ended in disaster!! Such a sweet image for a really great cause, and I love how you've used the twig punch, keeps things masculine.
Have a wonderful week!!
