Cricut & Distress Markers

I like to color!  Sometimes, I like my Cricut to draw, especially on watercolor paper. Using my Gypsy to do this is preferred. I create a file on my gypsy--one mat for drawing and the other mat for cutting. A micro tip Sharpie is used in my Cricut when I watercolor as the ink needs to be permanent, so it won't bleed. Then I use the Cricut to cut out the outlined images. This, to me, looks a lot like a stamp-and-cut type of image. A waterbrush is used with my distress markers on a craft mat to color my images. The cartridge used for these images was Art Philosophy.
