Distressed !

No not me, the card you've probably gathered I love my Distress inks ! So when I saw the challenge over at Creative Card Crew it put a smile on my face as their challenge this week is Distressing. This card is also for the Stamp Something challenge which is New Somethings, and is to use any new stash. The new stash I've used is the main stamp which is from an Elusive Images set that my eldest niece, Nikola, bought me for my birthday. Cool heh !

I started by painting some white card stock with Vintage Photo Distress Ink then I stamped the image with the same ink and also the sentiment, which is from a Woodware set of stamps. I distressed the edges with my scissors then sponged some Vintage Photo around the edge to darken it. I did the same to the card the birthday definition is stamped on. The papers are My Minds Eye and I've distressed them too with my scissors and some Vintage Photo ink.

I used my Mum's trusty sewing machine (hopefully she won't want it back too soon!) to sew around the edge and the swirls are a Sizzlet Scribbles die.
I really enjoyed making this card as I could get covered in ink ! Good job it comes off..eventually !
Well another cold and snowy day. I didn't venture out today I worked from home, I shall have to go out tomorrow though so I'm hoping we don't have any more snow in the next 24 hours.
Thanks for looking
