DV 110 Distressing

We have a brand new challenge at Dream Valley sponsored by Robyn’s Fetish. We would like to see your ‘distressed’ projects. 110 Distressing

I decided to try something a little different for my image and paper pieced it almost entirely. The only bits I didn’t paper piece were the very small green areas of stems and leaves because I couldn’t get my chunky fingers to cut round something so small, so I coloured those with prismacolor pencils.

My papers, and indeed my paper piecing papers are all from the Flights of Fantasy CDRom from Crafters Companion, and were in fact left over from a project I did with them last week.

My die cuts are Memory Box Beloved Butterfly, and Crealies Decorette No. 2. The birds are some I already had cut but I think they were Joanna Sheen’s Britannia dies.

I am entering this into:-
