Distress, Distressed, Distressing?

I've been on a distressing kick lately.  Ever since I created my first distressed card a few posts back...I've wanted to make everything distressed! Luckily, this Tellen's Place image fits that style.  =)

Anyway, Sketch Saturday has a fabulous sketch this week:


Isn't it cute?!?!  I had a ton of fun playing with it.  Here is my entry:


As I said, the image is from Tellen's Place Designs.  It was colored using Copics (I've been having a lot of fun playing with my new yellow Copics to create blonde hair!)  The papers used are from Tim Holtz's seasonal paper pack.  The numbers are American Crafts Thickers in glass slipper, sanded down and dabbed with Tim Holtz distress ink in Vintage Photo.  (Actually, all papers and stamps have been "aged" using distress ink in Vintage Photo and Tea Dye.)  The metal lock and key embellishments are TPC Studio Mr. & Mrs. metal accents.  When the card was all assembled it was misted with gold Tsukineko Sheer Shimmer Spritz.

This card is being entered in the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday: Week #141
Tellen's Place: Hearts
Alphabet Challenge: N is for Numbers

I really hope you enjoyed the card!  Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look.  Cheers!
