Mo's Dream Team Project of the Month Blog Hop

Yaaaaay! It's time for another Mo's Dream Team blog hop and this month we've all got a little distressed about things!  Yup, that's right, our theme is 'distressing', with inks, scissors, sandpaper - you name it, we've used it!  If you've arrived here from the super-talented Jak's blog then you're on the right track.  If not, then hop back over there to start from the beginning. 

When it came to choosing my image this month, I couldn't think of anyone more distressed than this little one:

Image: Mo's Digital Pencil, 'Broked'

Papers: Graphic 45, 'Halloween in Wonderland' and 'Christmas Past' collections

Oh the poor dear - isn't she the cutest little poppet though?  She seemed the perfect choice for this month's 'challenge'.  I don't do distressing very often so I was a bit nervous about this one.  I chose the muted/vintage papers because they seemed more appropriate to the theme and I had inks to match! The brown mat was edge-punched with Martha Stewarts Scallops and Dots punch before being generally mistreated with my scissor blades and curled and torn until I was happy.  Mind you, looks like poor Teddy is much more distrssed than my card!

I coloured the image with Copics and shaded with Prismacolors (as usual), keeping the pallet light so as not to clash too much with the papers I'd chosen.  I can't wait to have a go with the other images in this series too - they're all equally cute and forlorn-looking!

Right, it's time for you to hop over to the amazing Debbie's blog, where I know she'll have something fabulous waiting for you.

Enjoy the Hop and happy crafting.
