DISTRESSED OR WHAT!!!


Evening everyone....Hope you have all had a relaxing Sunday...

I managed to pop out for an hour this morning to a 'Demonstration Day' at one of my local craft shops and I wish I could have stayed all day....Lindsay Mason was demonstrating for Personal Impressions and she was brilliant....so many amazing ideas and techniques and such beautiful creations. Needless to say I came home with a lighter purse and ideas whizzing round in my head.....so watch this space.....







Today I have a card to share that I'm not sure if I like or not....I've had the Tilda finished on my desk for ages but I had an accident with the Distress Inks....I coloured her with the inks and was really pleased with the result, especially her hair when I dropped the ink on top of her resulting in a dirty brown mark on her knee....so I added another mark to her other knee and decided she must have been in the garden as this is what my trousers look like when I've been outside weeding.

The papers are a mish~mash from my scrap box.....Basic Grey, My Mind's Eye and Kaisercraft. The roses are from the Hobby House and the leaves are Marianne Creatables. I finished by adding some Glossy Accents to her boots.

I followed this sketch from Papertake Weekly Challenge....







I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:~

Papertake Weekly Challenge ~ A Sketch

Oh Debbie, I dont know why youre not sure about this card. I love it, I think its perfect. And its good to make something out of your comfort zone sometimes. I think thats the best way to find new techniques and ideas. A lot of my "mistakes" or things Im not sure about have turned out to be valuable new techniques or idea. Its a really gorgeous card.
