Catch The Bug Challenge

Wow, this week certainly went by fast, which means it’s time for another fabulous challenge over at Catch The Bug.  This week our theme is Distressed Shabby Chic.  It’s a good combo, and sure made me put my thinking cap on!

AKV Pumpkin Trio

I’ve used the image “A Kids View – Pumpkin Trio”, and you can find the image HERE.  I colored the image with Copics, then distressed the edges with scissors, and then sponged the edges with Peeled Paint distress ink by Tim Holtz.  The designer paper is from the Sweet Threads paper pad by Basic Grey.  I used a white gel pen and a black sharpie to add the faux stitching on the edges.  The sentiments are rubber stamps from Kraftin Kimmie.
