Distressed Nonsense

Still playing with my new copic's! Love the vibrancy of the colours. That's something I have not been able to do before so enjoying the look! still getting used to the bleeding issues! Thanks to all of you that gave me such wonderful advice in my last post! I have used a gorgeous Leanne Ellis design from Sugar Nellie...I love this image and yet I have only inked her a few times so I thought it was high time she made another appearance!

I am still working my way through my scrap box..in all honesty it could probably keep me going in crafting all year..so the idea of making a dent in it is prob a little unrealistic but I will see how I go.

These papers are from "WRMK - Nonsense range" They are so bright and vibrant but yet have a gorgeous distressed feel, although I have had my sandpaper out to add to the whole "distressed feel" and have crumpled up and torn the paper to add to the effect. The thread is leftover from some finished cross-stitch.

This is my entry for:

  9. I'm SO with you on the scrap paper thing... even if you never see the bottom of your scrap paper bin it feels great to use up as much as you can! Especially when the resulting cards look as amazing as this one... love it! :)

  26. Hi Julia

    Love the colours here and agree about the vibrancy of Copics. I went down the PM route fist, but to my mind there is no comparison.
