High Hopes challenge this week was "distressing". I have used papers from the Basic Grey Porcelain pad which are just fantastic. I distress the edges of the card and the mat that the image is on. The image is from Whiff Of Joy's Spring Collection and I have coloured her with Distress Inks. The flowers are made using my retro Flower Punches and brads from my stash.
The Friday Sketchers sketch was not the usual square so I have made an A6 card for a change. The papers are again from the delicious Basic Grey Porcelain collection. The image is the stamp that came with Craft Stamper this month and was designed by friend Hels. I have coloured him in with watercolour pencils and punched him out, inking up the circle edges. The sentiment is from the Stampin' Up! Oval All set and is punched out with their new Scalloped Oval punch then coloured with chalk ink. If you would like to get your hands on these SU goodies then I can order them for you, just give me a shout.The flowers were punched out using my retro Flower punches and secured with brads.
