Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Distress

This week we are looking for distressed cards. I struggle with this technique all the time. I never really know what to do and what exactly is considered distressed. So how I handled it was I scraped all my papers around the edges with sandpaper. Unfortunately it doesn't show too much. For my card I used my new paper pack called Oliver by Basic Grey. I love the boyish colors in this line of papers. My image is from the fabulous stamp company Lily Of The Valley. He's called "Gone Fishing". I think he's darling. I colored him with my copics. I added some twine, and threw a little fish charm from my sash on the twine.

This week our sponsor is My Favorite Things. They are offering a fantastic

$25.00 Gift Certificate.

We have another fabulous sponsor. They are Meljen's Designs. Their prize is a choice of

Four Free Digital Designs.
So let's see what you can come up with by Saturday Midnight.

PERFECT disressing to me Carloyn, a brilliant job. Thats the way I distress too, and occasionally open your scissors and put the paper in the open legs and cuff them up and down the paper, that works too, don't be afraid to have chunks out of the paper or rolled edges, but you have made this card great and i love this LOTV image. Papers are very nice. Debbiexx

I love this card, Carolyn! Such great colors and I love the sandpaper idea! I always use scissors and one of these days I'm sure to slice myself! Until then, I'll only distress when I have to! LOL!

Исходя из своих наблюдений за самой же собой, я пришла к выводу, что работа лишает даму многих неплохих свойств, таких как мягкосердечность, скромность, простодушие...
К сожалению, очень важность моего выхода на работу это изобретение не отменяет. Поэтому, разуверьте меня в том, что я выше написала! ))
