Distressed Tilda for Quixotic and Just Magnolia


Evening folks - hope you're enjoying the long weekend so far!  Bit of shopping today with my girlies and still messing about in my room moving things from one place to another!  Did I say it was a birthday pressie from my OH - a bit early but might get something else on the day too!! 

Anyhoo, onto my card - I got this gorgeous Tilda image months ago and decided she would be perfect sitting on this Alota chair which I've had in my stash for a  loooonnnggg time!!!  Coloured them up ages ago too, then saw the sketch by Bev on Just Magnolia for this week and so here she is.  Quixotic Paperie are asking for distressing, so I roughed up the edges and painted them with some Gesso primer from Claudia Helmuth for Ranger.  It felt a bit too distressed so added some Diamond Stickles along the edges which just softens it a little.  Coloured with Promarkers, of course, and the papers were mostly from my scrap pot - that is so satisfying!!
