Anya Distressed and still in the Pink


I think Anya looks really pretty surrounded with all her finest shabby chic odds and ends.

Coloured her with Pro Markers & Copics, scrunched the card very carefully to crease it, sanded the paper then cut and distressed all the edges before I brushed them with ink. The papers, which I stitched on, were also ripped and distressed, (have to say this is what I love doing).

Randomly pleated the pale pink lace before I stitched onto the card. Made two bows with more of the lace and also cut a couple of strips of lace and tied in a bundle with some string (had to bleach the string because it was the wrong colour) then teased apart. Flowers and pearls are all from my ever growing stash.


Have just found some more challenges to enter her into…

K L Stamping and Scrapping # 14 – Nesties Punches or Dies

Paper Take Weekly Challenge – Pretty Pink Papertake

Crazy 4 Challenges – Pretty in Pink

Creative Inspirations Challenge #24 – Distressing.

Crafty Creations – Textures, they want at least three different textures on your card.

Charisma Cardz ChallengeLeanne has chosen this weeks challenge and it’s…. Anything New….my new is the pink lace. She has just moved to the UAE and I am sure she will love it. We lived in the Middle East for seven years and just adored the ex-pat way of life… still do as we now live in Ireland.

Back home to the UK (after all this time I still call it home) this week and just can’t wait as I have not seen my beautiful grandchildren since September. Time to take lots more photos of them and to update my side bar as Amber is already moaning (as an 11 year old girl does) that the photo is horrible.
