Distressed!!

No I'm not talking about myself, although i might be at the end of the week with all 3 boys at home. I am of course talking about another project. I love the look of distressed cards and have thought for a while about making my own so here it is!
I started with yet another of the gorgeous sugar nellie simply adaroable stamps this time i have used "Grace". I coloured in with promarkers using dusky pink, blush and ivory for the skin, cool Grey number 5, 3 and 2 for the hair and for the bows in her hair and her dress i used peach and honeycomb
I cut the image out and put it onto a piece of white card. After that i cut a recetangle out of some lovely peach and white spotty card and stuck the image to that. The papers tha i have used are mainly paper mania ones altough there are a couple of bits that aren't and i can't remember where i had them from it's been so long. I used a nice little border to ut across the middle and distressed it with Tim Holtz Distress ink in antique linen. I have roughed up the edges on the backing sheet and again have distressed it a little with the same ink. For embelishements I have used some tyed-dyed gypsies from petaloo.
