Sundays With Crissy - an example of what happens if you get your challenges mixed up and a DT call

The challenge at Sundays With Crissy is Distressing this month. Can you spot ANY distressing on my card? No? That's because there isn't any! I totally got things mixed up! lol
The image is a Cupcake Bliss stamp from Whimsy Stamps. I coloured it with distress inks on watercolour sketching paper. It's quite thin so I tried to keep my colouring drier than usual.
There's also great news - Sundays with Crissy is having a DT call!!
 You can find all the details about the DT call HERE.

Hugs!

LMAO Annika! I'm sure I'm gonna mix up my DT challenges any day now and I'm only on 2 DTs. hee hee, love that you went ahead and posted it anyway. Seriously though, that's the best colouring I've seen of this image, you totally brought it to life. I always thought distress inks would be very muted, but they actually look really rich and a little bright here, I'm thinking particularly of the orangey-reds in the fur, just gorgeous. Oh, and maybe distress inks count as distressing? :) CoB

Lol this has happened to make so many times, I finish my card look up at the paper where I have the challenge written and realise I read the wrong date, bugger, bugger, so I add or cut or something to try and make it work, only when it's a sketch you know your buggered lol!

This is absolutely gorgeous, colouring is amazing, absolutely WOW factor and the rest just speaks for itself!

Incredible colouring, such a gorgeous image, you make it come alive.
Miss organised here has clear files for her DT's, and every card I make goes in the pocket labelled for the challenge.Sick eh!! Every note I write, all addresses, ideas, anything to do with the DT is in the clear file, with the front labelled too, so I cannot mix up...YET..lol..
