A Distressed Heart.

Hey everyone!

I hope you are having a lovely Sunday, and that your weekend has been a good one so far.

Today I am showing you a very lovely image from Sweet Escape Digis.

She is free, as part of the Kit & Clowder Facebook Challenge which runs until 6th February.


To bring this one to life, I decided to go wayyyy out of my comfort zone and use Distress Inks.

I’m moderately happy with how she turned out. I definitely need to practice more, but hey it’s fun so I don’t mind that at all! Smiles.

If you’re wanting to start with Distress Inks but  not sure where to begin, then click here and take a look at Tracy Payne’s fabulous Class available at Kit & Clowder.

The Distress Ink Colours I used are:-

Skin – Vintage Photo & Worn Lipstick for blush.

Hair – Walnut Stain &  Antique Linen.

Dress – Stormy Sky & Black Soot.

Heart – Fired Brick.


I created the pink/blue background with my chalks.

And the stitched oval which frames her, I created with my By DIEZyne Stitched Ovals. Which used to be available from Dies To Die For.


The corners and fan were created using my Signature Dies from Joanna Sheen (which is where the scallop card base comes from too.)

And Blue Stickles to add sparkle.


The flowers are hand rolled, and created with my Marianne Design LR0162 Flower & Leaf die set. Also available at Dies To Die For.

The princess paper and the sentiment square (with added Blue Stickles) are both from my Simple Stories – Enchanted paper pad.

The pale pink matting is from my Core – Dinations (Distressed) card pack.


Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Hugs & Happy Crafting Everyone!
