The Pixie Cottage Sketch Challenge #18 Vintage and or Distressing!

It's Wish Upon Wednesday time and it's time for another Special Guest Sketch Artist!
This time we have one of the Queen's of the Copic Markers, it's with great pleasure that today our sketch is designed by the very lovely Suzanne Dean from Scrapbitz!
Suzanne is a whizz with Copic's and has done many tutorials showing us mere mortals how she creates her masterpieces. She also has online classes at her Color Me Creative Classroom for those wishing to learn hands on.
As well as designing the sketch

Along with the super sketch for this challenge we'd love to see you get your hands a little inky and add some Vintage or Distressed touches to your creation.
Remember you can use the sketch, the technique or both!
One randomly picked winner will get their choice of 2 Pixie Cottage Stamps and the Design Teams Top Three entries will get to display the winners badge on their blog.
Winners will be announced on the Friday following the end of the challenge.

I used one of our new stamps Dancing Maisy by Di Carubia, for my distressing technique card..
MS punches were used for the butterfly border as well as my butterflies in flight.
Make sure that you check out all of the other beautiful vintage and or distressed cards from our DT at The Pixie Cottage Blog challenge. I look forward to seeing your creations.
