Does anyone have any tips?
Not sure if anyone answered this for you, sorry if it's a repeat.

I had the same problem. I bought Ancient Page ink at the suggestion of an SCSer and haven't had any probloems since. I have been told Memento ink is also very good but I can't get that locally here. HTH.

BTW - OP - great idea! I am a real novice at coloring so seeing what others do hoepfull yhelps me get beyond my 1st grade renditions!! LOl!
