I'm a person of wide interest. I like doing a lot of things but I'm a master at none. Right now I'm having so much fun making cards to share with my friends and family ....There are so many wonderful designers out there and the creativity of each one is so incredible. Im currently taking a painting class working with acrylic paints. I have a loving family...Married to the same wonderful man for over 31 years. I have three grown children and one beautiful grandaughter(who also shares my love of crafting).

Michelle Perkett Challenge #29

It's that time again... another fun challenge from the DT at Michelle Perkett Studios
We were to create a distressed card either with tools or ink I did both....You can get Rosie from Michelle's store on Etsy Here
I used craft card stock for the card itself ......the blue cardstock is from core' dinations....the paper directly behind Rosie is white cardstock I distressed with Tim Holt distress inks and SU inks..... colors (Broken China, Antique Linen, So Saffron and Certainly Celery). There is a transparency frame over Michelle's Rosie which is from Colorbok.....I found these transparencies at Michael's...there are 12 different frames in the package.

The greeting I found on this Site, There are so many quotes you can used for your cards .....I just fell in love with this site. Hope you enjoy what I haved shared.
Hugs Jean

This is beautiful Jean! I haven't tried any distressing at all. Maybe I'll give it a whirl. You have done this in gorgeous colors, and I love the acetate frame and the sentiment! Thanks for the wonderful inspiration and for sharing your talent.

This is stunning, Jean:O) Love your distressed backing paper, looks awesome. The frame is gorgeous, perfect to this beauty, and your colouring of her is brilliant.
Have a lovely Tuesday.
