One Stop Craft - 87 Distressing - DT Card

Good morning, and welcome to my little space, It's the weekend and that must mean it's time for another wonderful challenge over at One Stop Crafts.

This week the theme has been chosen by the lovely Gina who decided we need to get "Distressing" . No not you!! only your project. lol

I was having a tidy up in the week and found a cardboard box with tons and I mean tons of Cosmo Cricket card and paper and loads of their bits and bobs that I bought from QVC when I first started crafting last year. My aim for the next few weeks is to try and use as much of it as I can, starting with this card.

I've chosen the lovely Tilda for my image and coloured her with Promarkers and then used little dots of glamour dust on her dress and flowers band, then I've added liquid pearls (pastel Raspberry) to the flowers in her hair. Doesn't she look pretty. The full recipe is below this post.

Do pop over to One Stop Challenge and take a peek at the wonderful creations the other DT members have conjured up for you this week, they are outstanding yet again. While you are over there you can take a peek at the lovely prize up for grabs.

Thank you for visiting, I may see you later with another little tit bit. If not I will see you all tomorrow with another DT card.

Before I go I must tell you that the sketch I followed was from

Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge,

and what a gorgeous sketch this was, thank you Priscilla. I am entering this card into the challenge (mmsc60) . This is another beautiful blog that if you have the time you really should visit. The DT create some wonderful work.

Bye for now. Suzi xx
