La-La Lands Weekly Wednesday Challenge!!


Its week four at La-La Lands Weekly Wednesday Challenge blog and this week Kim Yu set us all the theme of Distressing.
So get your inks, sandpaper or scissors out and get distressing!!
I have picked my favourite Lala of the ones I have which is Fairy Lala. She is just a dream to colour! I have (for some strange reason) been drawn to purple recently and its not really one of my colours. I picked up a couple of shades of it and coloured her hair and I went from there.
I've coloured her with copics and added some sparkle to her wings and wand.
The papers I have used are Bearly Mine Designs - Designer Extreme Vols II and III, which have all been distressed by tearing and then inking with some copic inks. I then layered the printed papers onto Papermania Textured Card.
Here is another little view of her. The paper roses and pearl strands are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I have inked the larger roses as they are plain cream.

Again this week, Irina is offering a 25% discount to the winner and a top three blinkie award to those who are selected the most by the Design Team and Guest Designers.

I am entering this card for Three challenges
- Stamp Something - which is to use your favorite stamp (an added bonus was to use die cut or punched shapes which I have not done)
- Friday Sketchers - A fabulous sketch by Heidi click here to see the sketch. I've also noticed that I've added flowers where there shouldnt be any - however, I saw that the Design Team had a but of freedom and have added flowers and embellies in corners and around the image. So hopefully, I've not done anything wrong - the sketch is still very much visable :D
Creative Card Crew - Have a Fairy Nice Day! (I've used Fairy Lala - So think this counts hehe)

I hope you have fun with the challenge, please remember to visit the Design Team's and the Guest Designers Blogs.
