TSC Challenge #11: Show us your Distress


Happy Monday!  It's time for Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge and our theme this week is "Distress."  So, pull out your sponge, ink, paper, tools and or spraying mist and distress your creation.  Our FAB sponsor this week is once again Bugaboo Digital Stamps.

I used Skye's Orchid from Bugaboo for my creation.

You probably can't tell how I distressed my card, but I did. *honest*  I started out with SU cardsock and inked the edges with some brown distressed ink.  I then layered some Cor'dinations shimmery purple cardstock and I used my Tim Holtz's tool to distress the edges.  I stitched a layer of DP from MME "So Sophie - Graceful."  I embossed and sprayed the bottom cardstock with Tattered Angel black mist.  Using the Spellbinder's Label six, I cut out a couple layers and the image.  I also added flourishes from Cheery Lynn and added some bling.  I used Copic markers V93, V95, and V000 to color the beautiful flowers and YG61, YG67, YG05 and YG01 for the leaves.  The center of the flower is colored with Y21 and Y38.  I added stickles as well in the center to add sparkle.

Well, that is my card.  I hope you will join us this week, because I would love to see what you make.

Thanks for looking and commenting.


Now get to creating...

Remember:  There are no mistakes in cardmaking, only opportunities for creativity!
