A bit of practice with Distress Markers

Hope your week has started off well. It is cold and wet here in SW Ontario, but that's OK since I wanted to just do some baking away. It is my eldest grandson's birthday today and since Braden doesn't like cake I decided to make him some Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies for his after school snack...always good with a glass of cold milk! Yum!
Anyway, another good thing to do on a cold, wet day is practice your colouring! So here is another of my attempts with the Water Colour Distress Markers, on loan from my daughter, Jasmine.
This time I worked with a Mo Manning image that I bought a few years back. I actually thought I had lost it (due to a computer crash), but thank goodness my husband told me to back up my files onto an external hard drive, because there she was- safe & sound! Here take a peek at the end result:


I decided to work with shades of purple simply because I found them the easiest to blend with and I wanted to finally use this mauve DP that I have had for forever! {You know, one of those papers you just love so much you can't bear to cut it!}. I used 6 different dies on this card, some bling, pearls, an antique gold button and a metal heart! The pretty ribbon flowers, satin edged ribbon, {bow}, and the crocheted lace are all from good old Walmart. I distressed most of the edges with my little heart shaped distressing tool and ink. Lots of machine stitching on this card as well.
I am really pleased with how this turned out. Those distress markers are getting more and more appealing every day! {I sure hope Santa reads blogs, lol!}.
 
Blessings & hugs,
Nancy

Purple is my favourite colour Nancy so I lurve your card to start with!!! Your embellishments are amazing and I think your image is really cute - I hadn't recognized it as a Mo Manning one. This is a brilliant card.

Thank you so much for entering the OSAAT (AG with a butterfly) Challenge this fortnight, lots of luck to you.
