New Challenge at Delightful

Good Morning everyone hope you are fine and well.  Today sees the start of a brand new challenge over at Delightful Challenges and the theme this week is:

DISTRESSED

We would love to see your project with some distressing on it, this could be with Inks or torn paper you get the drift.  Here is the card I have made:


I have used the Thanksgiving Indian Set from Digital Delights which is available to purchase here. This set comes with a girl and a boy Indian and also the sentiment.  I coloured her with Copics and this is the first time I have coloured black hair.  The paper is by Prima from the Romance Novel Collection.  I have distressed the edges with Black Soot DI and also used my Tim Holtz paper distresser.  I have used a Spellbinders die to cut the image out and matted her on a Spellbinders Floral Oval.  The flower is made from a Spellbinders Die and the resin flowers are from Teresa at My Crafty Heart.  The gorgeous lace was from Alessandra - a big thank you!
Our sponsor this week is:
and the prize is a £10 store voucher to their on line store.  Remember, you don't have to use a Digital Delights image to enter but if you do you can then enter twice!
Please pop over to Delightful Challenges to see what the rest of the Design Team have done for further inspiration.
I don't know why Blogger has suddenly decided to do double spacing I promise you I have not done it and I don't know how to change it back! Thanks for looking, take care xx

Blogger does seem to have a mind of its own sometimes - very frustrating!

HI Susan

Grr - blogger strikes again - he's being really naughty at the moment - everyone seems to be having little problems with him

anyways, fabulous card with a great image - love the colours you have used for your vintage theme.

Thank you for dropping by to see me and leaving me some comments - they are as always much appreciated.

Take care and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Ta ta for now.
