In Distress - Timeless Tuesday 235
It's another Tuesday and that means another Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge!
I am your hostess this week and my challenge is to be in distress! That's right... distress your card or project using anything to make it look in distress - distress inks, edge distressers, sandpaper, or anything else you are creative in using to make it amazing!
For my card, I went with the traditional edge distressing and was inspired by Christine Okken's style of this new release called Mountain View which you can see here. Although I didn't quite make it as striking, my technique was just trying variations of it. I did distress the edges of each layer and folded the corners on the middle and strip layers. I used some paper from 7Gypsies for a more masculine look from their Off the Wall collection. I popped up the image and added the sentiment underneath that before finishing it with some black and cream jute twine. The image was colored in the following Copic colors and Flourishes Classic Cream Cardstock was used for the base and image.
Come play along and be sure to link up your creation for a chance to win! Thanks for stopping in and taking a peek!!
