Distress Ink Colouring Tutorial 5 - Adding Detail to Hair

Hi everyone, I hope you had a good weekend, and for Mother's in the UK, I hope you had a great Mother's Day.

Today I'm bringing you part 5 of my Distress Ink Colouring Tutorials and this one is about adding detail, texture and definition to hair, using the pen nib end of the distress ink marker.

This is a completely optional step, but one that I often do.

So after we add the detailing your image should look something like this
(apologies for the poor quality of the picture, I didn't have time to take one before scheduling this post, so I just lifted one from the video. I'll add a better quality photo tonight when I get in from work)

 The video will take you through it step by step, or you can visit the YouTube video directly, by clicking on the link here.

I hope you find this video helpful, I have more video tutorials to share with you in the following weeks, including colouring black hair on Canson Montval paper, colouring clothing, and how I make one of my cards (including a speed clolouring of the image), from start to finish.

I also plan on making videos on colouring curly hair, animals and backgrounds.

Thanks for taking the time to visit me today and if you don't already follow me I would love it if you would do so and not miss any of my posts.

See you soon! :) xx
