This week the challenge at Just Magnolia is "Distressing". This is not something I would usually make though I did enjoy finding ways to give my card a distressed look!! I do prefer a nice neat look not too fussy either, I think its because I'm a virgo!!
When I colour this Tilda its always in pretty summer colours, this is an extremely different look for her. I have used the cool grey promarkers 1-5, and black with stardust pen for a little sparkle. The card is DCWV, I have used the cuttlebug paisley embossing folder sanded then used metalic rub ons in silver over the top, (they have not seen the light of day for many years!!). The light grey has been distressed with my PM distrssing tool and inked around the edges with silver and black ink pads. I have drawn faux stitching around the stamped piece and pierced holes to give more depth, then inked the endges first with black and then a little silver to lighten it. The buttons were cut off some old clothes (I do remeber sometimes to keep the pretty buttons) and the rub on is from my stash.
I'm still taking things slowly, feeling a little better today, the sun was out no rain!!!
Hope you have had a lovely weekend and some good weather!!
Thanks for stopping by,
