For the next two weeks at Crafty Cardmakers we want to see your ‘distressed’ projects.
I used a brand new freebie stamp set from Card Making and Papercraft to make my card. I stamped her in black and embossed with clear powder. Having distressed the edges of the mats, and all the layers, which were some purple bark mirri card, and two different paper packs Memory Box Viola, and Wild Rose’s Butterfly Garden; I frantaged randomly. I also die cut a Memory Box branch die in black and embossed a few times with clear powder to give it a shine. Finally I daubed some Pebeo Gilding Wax around the edges. The top layer of paper was waste from when I die cut a mat for another project from the centre. I used a MS bracket edge punch to give a bit of shape to the top and bottom. I liked the way that bits of the paper underneath were able to peep out from more than just the edge, and it used up an otherwise useless piece of paper!
The two resin butterflies, and flowers are all from my stash.
