In Distress...Sarah Kay that is!

Ok, hands up all of you who watched even the tiniest bit of Craft Day on QVC this week (I'm sticking my hand up)... to be honest I rarely watch craft on TV as I find some of the demos rushed (especially on QVC)... they're more interested in selling their product than showing people how to use it. But hey, didn't stop me tuning in a bit to watch Tim Holtz. I only have one of his products... Distress Inks... but I haven't used them for AGES! So you could say he's inspired me to get them out for a little play, hence my card...

I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday, and have gone with the theme from Simon Says Stamp "Vintage with Flowers". I'm also just in time to enter the February challenge at By the Cute & Girly which is "Love". I'm not sure if there's a bit too much distressing going on, but I kinda like it! The little Sarah Kay stamp is one I won from Stampavie recently, isn't she pretty? I think this has to be one of my fave SK stamps (well I only have two lol)!!!
  • Stamp "Lucy with Kitten" Sarah Kay for Stampavie
  • Colouring Promarkers/Distress Inks (Old Paper & Frayed Burlap)
  • Papers 6x6 Isabella Pad, K & Co
  • Sentiment Stamp, Woodware Tiny Phrases
  • Flowers Prima
  • Charm, Bunny Zoe's Crafts
  • Brads, lace from stash

So it's almost the weekend again, don't the weeks just seem to fly by! Thanks so much for popping by today, I appreciate all the lovely comments I receive from you!

Not too much distressing at all. The whole card has a lovely soft look to it and your colouring with Distress inks is awsome. A beautiful card.
Thank you for sharing it with us at By the Cute and Girly.
