Repurpose of old copic markers – distressed edges on autumn fall leaves

and if I say old I MEAN old. What a quality! I bought them around 30 years ago for my fashion design studies.
Distressed edges are so popular lately, my colors of ink pads are limited and of course impatient me wanted to do it right now!

So I remembered the drawer with the old markers. And indeed it worked. With the ink blending tool I had to work quick, because the markers ink is drying quickly. But it worked and I had a beautiful choice of colors 🙂

Have fun to check your old markers and reuse them for modern techniques!

For the leaves I used my autumn leaves papers available here:
