De-stressing with some distressing

This week at Paper Sundaes, the challenge is to add some distressing to your paper creation!  I've coloured up this beautiful 'Tilda in the Garden' which I stamped during a stamping playdate on the weekend from my dear friend Shana!  It is from the brand new 'You are so Special' Magnolia collection. The sentiment is also from the same collection.

I'm not sure what was going on with my mid-tone brown.  I never did figure out if it was my E34 or E35, but one of them was not blending right last night or this morning, not absorbing into the paper and just kind of sitting on top.  I may end up changing those two tips before they contaminate their friends!  You can see the reflection a bit here where the light was hitting it.  It's not nearly as bad from a side angle as you can see in the close-up.

Copic colours:
Skin:  E000, 00, 02, Chalk for blush
Dress, socks, roses:  R81, 83, 85
Hair, Shoes:  E30, 31, 34, 35, 37
Greenery:  G20, 21, 94

I've paired her up with some Magnolia papers that I bought and had never got around to using, from the Fairytale paper pack.  I've left her quite plain, in light of the migraine I've been fighting since this morning!

If you missed the news at Paper Sundaes, we have also left last week's Birthday celebration challenge open an extra two days, so you have until Monday night to pick your favourite of ANY of our first 51 challenges to have a chance to win one of 6 challenge prizes!  Winners will be announced Wednesday on Paper Sundaes.  So really, there is no reason for you to not enter your cards into our challenge!  LOL

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Tomorrow I am off to the dentist, so I expect it won't be any better of a day than today!  Hope you have something a lot more fun planned.
