Mo's dp 2 challenge dt

As usual these days i am a little late with my post, have been really busy filming dvd tutorials for Copic SA as we are attending a huge wholesale show next week and they wanted something to put up on a big screen to punt copics in SA and hopefully encourage those that are lagging behind a little to get up to speed and start to use a medium of coloring that actually gives your cards the WOW factor.  So yes i am late, but i do have a good excuse, lol
Our challenge this week on Mo's challenge blog is Vintage with distressing and lace" duh! i forgot the lace bit.  Ah well, if you look at my card i think i got the vintage wrong too, but there you go the dt sometimes get it wrong too, kwim. 
So for my card i did manage to get the distressing right and distressed all the edges, going over them with vintage photo once distressed to death.  Layered onto a spellbinder fleur de lis.
Added my flowers and for a final touch a butterfly that i added some flat backed pearls to the centres of.
the image is an older one of Mo's, but i just love her, especially the angle from which she was drawn and you can purchase her Here from Mo's store


  1. Oh too precious! The distressing is amazing and I love that adorable image from Mo!

  3. I love the peachy colours with the green Paola - very pretty.


  4. Oh, so much ambiance on this card with all the distressing! This image is so adorable, and she really looks like she twirling around with the grass beneath her feet. Gorgeous papers - just stunning! Such beautiful work...hugs...Barb

  5. Looks great to me! But it's nice to know that you (and the DT) don't always remember everything!

  6. Just beautiful, Paola! I love this image, and the plaid and striped papers are wonderful!


I really appreciate the time it takes to leave a comment, totally makes it all worthwhile, thanks so much for making my day.
