Distressing must be this weeks favourite, both Just Magnolia and Simon Says Stamp has it as a challenge. It also happens to be my favourite, lucky me! I really enjoy to rub in different ink colours to give some shading to the papers. The lovely sketch is from Friday Sketchers, I think I´ll use it again, so easy and fun to work with. My Edwin did get golden stripes on his shirt, you might be able to see them if you click on the pic. (I´ll see if I can get a better photo tomorrow :))

Papers: Bazzill cardstock, the others are from Panduro

Stamps and inks: Edwin from Magnolia, sentiment is Prima, bubble plastic, Distress Inks from Ranger

Colouring: Derwent watercolours, Sakura pens for some highlights

Tools: Swirl die from Sissix and unstitch tool for distressing

Misc: Star is a RockStar chipboard, can´t remember from who, brads from the Scrapbook House and some Dimensional Magic to the drinks.

If you have time, go to Lucy and see her wonderful Magnolia creations. She has her own style!!!

Take care!
