Sugar Bowl Challenge - Shabby Chic!
How are you today?
We are back with another Sugar Bowl Challenge. This week Kathy has drawn the sketch and has chosen the option of Shabby Chic.....a great excuse to get a bit inky and do some distressing!
I picked a Gorjuss Girl as I thought she would look great with the shabby look!
I used Kraft card stock as my main base and then used my Distress Crackle paint to smear roughly around the edges of the card. I then found this small piece of pink gingham and gave it the distress treatment. I have lost me wee Tim Holtz tool for distressing, so the scissors just had to do. I tore a piece out of an old book ( don't tell my hubbie or he would have a fit!!), scrunched it and then distressed it with ink. Again the piece of cardboard got a smearing of paint.
I had a lot of fun with this one!!
The image was coloured with pencils, apart from the skin tones where I used copics.
Well I hope you have time to pop by the Sugar Bowl and get inspired by all the other girls work. I am always wowed with what they come up with!
Before I have to tell you all about the wonderful new Diane Duda digi stamps that have JUST been released. There is an adorable collection of fairies and alongside those there is the best collection of little boys! I love 'em! Having 3 boys they are going to be just perfect. I already ahve some plans in my head for them! Check them all out here.
Thanks for stopping by to say hellooooo! Have a great day!
