What's next?

Challenge #Fun in the sun  http://bellesnwhistlesstamps.blogspot.com/
Challenge #102 Distressing   http://cupcakecraftchallenges.blogspot.com/
Challenge #We're all going dotty!  http://simonsaysstampschallenge.blogspot.com/


For this project I chose a Bells and Whistles stamp by Elizabeth Bell.  The image was coloured with copic pens and  bronze, blue and silver ink pads were used to create the distressed edging.  The paper was then distressed with a paper distressing tool by Tim Holtz.  I used a Nestibilities circle die to cut the image out masking the towel area so that the die would not cut through this part of the image.

The backing papers were from Colour my world and Crafters Companion.  I also ripped the one edge of the paper to create another kind of distressed edge.

I then finished the card with a couple of beads.

Hi Sharon, this card is totally fab. The shading is amazing. I actually thought the circle was a cut out and was trying to work out how you'd stuck the cute little fella on!! Thanks for playing at Cupcake this week. xx
