Just Magnolia's Distress Challenge!
Today I have another card that I would like to share with you. I made this card for Just Magnolia's "distress" challenge. For some reason, I very seldom apply any type of distressing to my cards but now , I'm not so nervous about it and I kind of like the technique. I distressed my design paper and my images base mat with my scissors. I even sponged Pink Pirouette on most of my card stocks and design paper. *which is a pretty brave move for me! *lol*
Alva is colored in with Copic Markers and I used the " out of frame method" with my square nesties die. As you can see, I cut in a little bit too deeply into Alva's left leg and leaf area leaving a small gash in that area. *ouch!*
Other embellishments and tools include my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, MS wave punch,ribbon, charm, half pearls,flowers, Stickles and Prima's Say It With Pearls flower embellishment. c/s Bazzill and Papertrey Ink, dp K&Company Swell Noel Bells
