This week's challenge is "Distressing", well not literally !! We want to see distressing techniques in your creations this week and I for one can't wait to start visiting all those blogs to see them all.
This is my card for this week's challenge.
To make this card I used :
Woodware card from a card pack I purchased from Potato Patch Crafts in Devizes, Wiltshire. These are gorgeous as they are like cardboard and have a lovely "natural" texture to them. I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them and it was ideal for this type of card.
BasicGrey "Mellow" papers (which you already know I adore !)
Trees, leaves and the sentiment are from the new Magnolia Fall Stamp Club Kit which arrived with me in the week and I couldn't wait to start using. These were stamped with Brilliance Coffee Bean ink which is my favourite at the moment. I love using brown ink, it makes such a change from black and isn't as heavy and seems to "go" with everything. Go on, give it a try. These ink pads (the small ones) are only about £1.60 and they are the best £1.60 I have spent recently ! I painted the images in distress inks.
The ribbon is from my stash.
The conkers are from my local park !
I look forward to seeing your entries and have fun, I did !
