Distressed Tilda

Hiya all,
As I look at all the beautiful cards where people have used distress inks for painting I keep thinking I would love to have a go at that, so I set myself a New Year Resolution to have a go,
well the other afternoon I did and although I wasn't too displeased with the results, she's not perfect by any means, so I asked the opinions of my friends on Docrafts and they said I should put her on a card, so here goes...don't laugh :o)






I did enjoy painting so I shall have another go and hopefully get better. 

Challenges;
The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog ~ New year resolution (Distress painting) ribbon & button
Moving along with the times ~ Blooming Marvelous
CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS ~ Anything Goes


Thanks for looking.
Luv & hugs

Wow Teresa, if you consider that anything other than fab??..... Your work is just so lovely. I keep looking at distress colouring feeling I need to do it, if mine looks as good I would be delighted.

See!! We said it would look gorgeous on a card, and of course we were right. Your dc friends know a really good card when we see one. Just perfect, Teresa.

What's to laugh at? it's hard to colour in distress inks and your Tilda does look great. Oh the card is beautiful too, I'd be so pleased if I did this. CoB

Hi Teresa,
I think the colouring looks wonderful. I always think we are our own worst critics.
Love the card and delightful layout.

Dena said...

Teresa! Yay! I'm so glad you tried distress inks. Your Tilda looks fabulous! I think you did a really great job on her. You will become addicted so be forewarned! haha! I like how you have a softer hand than I do. I tend to keep adding and adding haha! Very pretty soft look!
Hugs, Dena

Hunny this is fab! My first attempt with DIs went straight in the bin. But I persevered and now hardly use anything else. There is a tutorial for beginners on my blog and a gallery of my fave DI results if you fancy a browse sometime, you'd always be welcome. Hugs Sxx

rosie said...

your card is as always Teresa exquisite. your colouring in is beautiful. you can clearly see how much time and trouble you take over all of your cards.
hugs to you x

Lindyloo said...

Laugh, if I should laugh at this then I should I throw all my work in the bin. It's good and the card is gorgeous.
Enjoy your painting. Linda

Marlies said...

Wauw what a gorgeous card Teresa! Lovely soft colours and your colouring with distress is realy great! hugs, Marlies

Deb.x said...

Hi Teresa - This is great & well done for your first attempt at DI's! Your Copic colouring is fabulous but this is a totally different technique whilst working on simelar principles, so as a first go I think you've done a fab job!
For me personally I'd say just a little more contrast next time ie. more shading round the edges which I do with either Pumice Stone (grey) OR Walnut Satin (dark brown), depending on the colours your working in, then Black Soot. But beware if you do try it, you only need the tiniest of touches with them especially the black.
Hope that helps & good luck with your DI venture!
