Getting distressed over Copic Colour Challenge



Well another Wednesday is here which means another colour combo for the Copic Colour Challenge. In an attmept to stop my recently found mojo running off again, I jumped at the chance of using the image in progress I had already got on my desk. Not really sure of how I pictured these colours to look, I also had to dig deep into my paper stock to find something suitable....I hope it works! Regardless - I had so much fun with these colours and the fabby Michelle Perkett image.
This week's colours are;



and here is my finished card.



I made this card to also join in with this week's challenge over at Michelle Perkett Studio where you need to use some distressing! I distressed the edges, torn paper and inked. I used an old file on the little metal paper fastener and brad and then went a bit mad with some metalic rub ons!
Thoroughly enjoyed the challenge thank you.
I also played along with hte challenge over on Papertake weekly - Shiny, Sparkly & Special. I wanted this to be subtle so you may have to look hard!LOL The glosy accents and pearly brads are shiny, the sparkles are the tiny little silver stitiches I have penned on, the metallic ink I have distressed the edges with and also the metallic rub on I went mad with!LOL Hmm "special" I cannot say my work is special, I am far too critical of myself and my work....but I promise you, cutting into that gorgous lace was really hard work, so I will say the lace is special!
Right, enough of my waffle, let's get on. Don't forget to grab those Copics and join us over at the Copic Colour challenge, we have another GREAT prize from Toodles & Binks, so get your name in the hat!
