Incy Wincy Designs - Challenge 50!!!!

Wow they are celebrating over at Incy Wincy Designs this week. They have reached Challenge #50!!!!

We are being sponsored this week by a brilliant company called Instyle Stamps. They offer a range of rubber stamps as well as Digital Images. The prize they are offering this week is a choice of 4 digital images to the lucky winner!!

The challenge this week is for you to use distressing on your cards. This can be by distressing your papers or using distress inks.

I loved being down my Mum's over the weekend & took full advantage of her fab garden. I followed the sketch & technique over at The Pixie Cottage. I haven't made an aperture card for ages & it was great to do something different for a change. I just loved the image too. I coloured Ava in using my Promarkers.

Here is the view through the aperture from the inside of the card and here is the image with the distressed papers.

I am loving these pens more & more. I can't believe I was able to create cards with a basic pack of 12 though as I seem to use more & more shades as I get more lol!!!

Here is a closer look at the image. I love this mirror reflection. I couldn't help glittering her wings either lol!!!! xx Clare x
