Dottie's World Sunday Challenge - Tutorial Taster!

Louise set the challenge this week at Dottie's World, and here it is.....

"Everywhere I look these days I find fantastic tutorials which suggests that everyone must love them. For this challenge I want you to make something (it doesn't have to be a card) following a Charmed Cards and Crafts tutorial or class. When you put your creation on your blog please link up to your chosen tutorial and then we can all have a look."

As I am loving using Tim Holtz Distress Inks at the moment, I decided this was the way I wanted to go, and there is a fabulous tutorial link which can be found on the Charmed Cards and Crafts website HERE and even better, the Distress Inks can also be purchased from Charmed HERE.

I used Tattered Rose and Shabby Shutters to create the background with some Cut & Dry foam. The image also uses Black Soot, Brushed Corduroy, Worn Lipstick and Walnut Stain and was created using a Koi Waterbrush. The colour is built up gradually to achieve the shading.

The sentiment is a freebie from Karen and papers are Imaginisce and Bo Bunny, with a Prima heart and ribbon from stash.

Just in case you didn't know, there will be a brand new Dottie and George bundle ready next weekend, so expect lots more samples here.
