This is my latest DT creations for the challenge over at Bee Crafty. Our challenge this week is 'distressing'. I've used the Christmas fairies on my card - available to buy here.
I got in a bit of a tizz as those who know me will know that distressing isn't my thing. Still, I had a go!
I used this weeks fab sketch from the Pink Elephant and picked my images from Bee Crafty as Flutterby Wednesday want to see angels. Digital Tuesday asked us to use things with wings and Passion for ProMarkers set out a gorgeous colour combo perfect for Christmas cards. They also have a brilliant weekend workshop on shading on their blog too - have a look.
I used papers from DCWV and although they were already a bit distressed in the pattern, I added a little more fluid chalk ink around the edges, I also braved it and sponged some around the image AFTER I'd shaded it so it could have gone horribly wrong! I made the matching brads using a Papermania brad kit and that's my card.
The clocks going back meant nothing to Zac (my 22 month old) who has been awake since 4.15am (3.15) and eventually got me up at 5.15 (4.15)? I don't know it's too confusing. I tried grabbing a nap on the sofa which only resulted in him climbing on me, digging elbows and knees in various parts of my anatomy and rendering any chance of sleep a thing of yesterday. Little monkey.
