Quiet Elegance

      Guylou's Inimitability is our current sponsor for the challenge over at TTCRD.  Our challenge is to use any form of distressing.  I've colored Guylou's *Monique* with Copics:
     To distress my paper I used the Zutter Distrezz-it-All, and ran it back and forth until I got the look I was after.  I was trying for shabby-chic and don't do this look too often so it took me longer than usual to work out a lay-out.  
     If you're the winner at TTCRD, you'll receive a $10 gift certificate for Guylou's Inimitability lovely digi designs.  

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
The Joyful Stamper ~ Inspire Me Friday, Anything Goes

  5. I love your shabby chic look, especially those tattered edges. What a brilliant idea adding the lace to her skirt! I've missed you too and can't wait to browse your archives to see what I've been missed out on. Still practicing my watercoloring thanks to you but those take much longer than my art journal ;)

  6. You've made such a lovely card. Thanks for joining us at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge. Good luck and hope to see you next time.
