Cute Card Thursday has some great Challenges every week and today's is a great one.
So the Challenge today is Oh, So Distressing. Well that means you should show off a Distressing Technique or two or three. Whatever you like. I myself went all out, as usual. So first off here is my card and then I'll give you a list.
First off I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink (Tim Holtz) to distress the outer edges of the card base.
Next is a piece of vintage type that has the edges distressed using a handy Distressing tool (Stampin Up') and the Vintage Photo ink around the torn edges. For the Sentiment (7 Gypsies) I stamped it on a piece of white card stock and then did my smooch and lift technique using Vintage Photo ink . Same with the little hand at the bottom. The strip on the left hand side is a piece of Kraft Card stock that has been run through the Big Shot with one of my oldest and fave Embossing Folders. Edges are Distressed, inked and then I rubbed Vintage Photo Ink over the top and sprinkled water on it to give it a vintage feel. The Image, Stella Birthday-One More Candle was colored with Copics and Snow Pen and Stickles added to her hair and the outside edges distressed with Vintage Photo Ink.
I hope you all join in this week and Have a Great Day.
