Distressing Times @ Diva's

Hello again, it's my 3 in a row week and I'm back today with a DT project for
and I'm super excited about this one as I've been dying to colour up my Saturated Canary images for so long and I finally got the chance!
Team A are on duty today and this week we have had permission to get
Not that I need telling, in my everyday life it's a regular occurrence!

So here she is my very first SC image.... Hippielove
oooh those eyes....doncha just love them! 
Coloured with Copics and a touch of brown Prisma Pencil on her hair tips, the papers are Echo Park, the flowers WOC, the die cuts Magnolia and the ribbon is from Ladybugs Craft Ink.
I have to say distressing does not come easy to me, I think I have a touch of OCD as I like everything to be straight and precise lol.

We have a fabulous sponsor this week

All the details of this weeks challenge, the prize and some fabulous inspiration from the Diva's can be found on the main challenge page HERE

Thank you for popping by,
 I'll be back tomorrow with my MAWTT DT project
