7 Kids College Fund Challenge
The challenge for the next 2 weeks on the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge blog is to try something new or that you are uncomfortable or that you need to practice. The lucky winner of this challenge will receive a $20.00 gift certificate towards the brand new Magnolia So Special collection. Boy, I sure wish I could win lol. There are a couple images in this collection that I just love!
For my card I wanted to practice watercoloring with distress inks and to try shabby chic. I tend to do clean lines and copic coloring so I thought this would stretch me a bit. I have to say that overall I am happy with how my card came out. I used the adorable Sweet Tilda image from Magnolia. I used a good deal of crackle paint on the all the edges and did some paper tearing to try and help achieve that shabby chic look. I also added some stickles to the dress and her hair bows.
