Creative Knockouts - Distressed

Hey there everyone!  I hope you are having a great night (day)!  We kick off another challenge over on the Creative Knockouts blog.  The challenge this week is 'Distressed', and we are sponsored by the fabulous  Lacy Sunshine.  You won't want to miss this one - you could win 3 of their digis!


The image I used for this challenge is the gorgeous Far East Enchantress.  I just love all of their Enchantress digis...it was hard to choose!


The Copics I used are: E000, E00, E04, E11, E21 & R11; hair - E40, E43, E47 & E49; dress - R01, R02, R08, YG00, YG03, YG17 & YG25.

For the card I used paper from the Basic Grey line 'Konichiwa' (I just LOVE this line - you've probably seen it here before, lol), lace, and Tim Holtz die cut ( Caged Bird).  To distress my card, I used my handy-dandy Heidi Swapp 'Edge Distresser' which I bought about a hundred years ago.  Love this little tool:)


Typically, I like to add flowers to my cards (again, you've probably noticed, lol), but for this I only added a single small rose to her hair.  There is a flower on the image, so I added this one over it for a little 'pop'.  Cute, huh? 


Thanks for taking a look!  I hope you'll hop on over to the Creative Knockouts blog and share your distressed project with us!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes
Ruby's Rainbow - Anything Goes
