But first it is Just Magnolia Friday and today it is just so Distressing!!! yes we are asked to distress our card in some way. So it is a pretty easy request so I hope you will join in!
My card -
I went with ink and sanding as my distressing tools - Funny I started out with the Core'dinations card stock as my starting point. Really odd for me, but I new with the challenge I wanted to have the chocolate box brown and yellow paper as my sanded focus. I used my Cuttlebug embossing folder then sanded until the yellow really showed through. Then that gave me my colors, a yellow card stock base, then more of the core'dinations, a scrap of yellow and white gingham pattern paper. I sanded the edges of all of the card stock. Then I picked my image -
I have always used greens and blue with this image, and for some reason I thought she would be pretty in yellow and brown. I colored her up with my Copics, then high lighted with white gel pen. I then used a sponge and light brown ink and rubbed the edges of the image, a vintage "distressed" look don't you think? I then matted her with a piece of the brown card stock punched with a EK Success wave border punch, then sanded. Matted again with yellow. The sentiment is wonderful don't you think? It is from Greeting Farm, and is a new set of wonderful sentiments by my buddie Jessica... love them!
Then I added a satin brown ribbon, and one of my new Prima roses. How fabulous is it? WOW I know I am going to have to order lots more of these! I then added a few Martha Stewart frond leaf punches.
Now hop over and see all the other DT cards... WOW I am really finding it tough to keep up these ladies talent... they are sooo talented and their cards are just amazing! Then distress up a card yourself and join us ok? Great prize again!
