Good morning Bloglandia! I hope everyone's Thursdays are off to a fantastic start. This morning I want to share (what I think is...) a beautiful card for this week's Creative Knockouts (#88) where the challenge is....Distress It! This week's sponsor is Lacy Sunshine, and oh yes, there is a prize to be won!
So, those who know me, know that I really like distressing in theory...but actually DOING it kinda freaks me out. I mean, I just colored this amazing image and spent some time doing so...now I have to mess it up?! eek!
(I guess that means it's a good "challenge" for me then!?) ;)
But...I DID IT! hehe. Here is my contribution to today, featuring Rory: Life is Grand. Lacy Sunshine has a lot of really fabulous images, I had trouble choosing just one to work with today! I guess having a wish list is a good thing, right?
Even after all of my disclaimers, I have to say I was very, VERY pleased with how this card turned out. I think it has a nice distressed feel, while still showcasing the work of coloring and of course showing how sweet this little Rory is!
I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch for this lovely (Mojo396). This is a great sketch, and really versatile. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to play along. I have another project idea too if I get a few free minutes today...
