Distressed? You will be!!
Hello, during my pc enforced absence I was quite busy so I wanted to share with you some of the cards that I made.
Here is a Pearl Anniversary card I was asked to make. I decided to try the 'vintage' - 'distressed' style and this is the result! I hope Sheila and Sue aren't laughing too loud!? I thoroughly enjoyed getting mucky and had a wonderful time! I used Funky Fairy pp, some irridescent ivory paper, QK: butterfly, initials, swirls, numbers & heart, CB script embossing folder and the 'ribbon' was found last month in the sale at Hobbycraft for a massive reel for only 99p! Stick on pearls also from HC.
I tried the 'spongey' application of two shades of ink, versamarked some Hero Arts swirls and finished with some glimmer mist in irridescent gold.
So, in all it was 2 firsts for me, distressing the pp and shimmer misting!
Id love to know what the best sponge is to use so if you have any tips, Id love to hear them!
Hope you like my little creation and Ive had a wonderful day catching up with blogs and Ive only got to Sunday! Im going to thoroughly enjoy the rest of the week catching up with everything else!
September 1st already with autumn around the corner!
Thanks for looking
