D is for Distressing.......

Good morning bloggers!

Wow I can't believe it's time for another challenge over at ABC we are now up to the letter 'D' so it's time for a little distressing. I chose to use the fab sketch from Magnolia Down Under teamed with the gorgeous Fairytale Tilda and her froggy friend. Once again I used the beautiful 'Ella Blue' Dp's from GCD, ooh they are soo yummy. As usual I coloured my image with ProMarkers then distressed everything with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink then added loads of Stardust Stickles. I made the flowers spritzing them with water to further distress them then I srayed them with Irridescent Gold Glimmer Mist and added some more stickles.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Magnolia Down Under - #63 'Sketch'
Paper Sundaes - #35 'Use at Least 3 Different Embellishments' (I used lace, pearls a charm and flowers)
Totally Gorjuss - #47 'Flowers'

ProMarker Colour Recipe:
Skin: Blush, Dusky Pink
Hair: Sandstone, Cinnamon and Cocoa
Dress: Cool Aqua
Frog: Pear Green, Moss
