Distressing at Deep Ocean Challenge blog

It's Tuesday and time for another challenge at Deep Ocean Challenge blog. Our theme this fortnight is DISTRESSING!

Our sponsor this time is Live and Love crafts with a voucher for their store. :)

I made a gift bag with Lucky Edwin from Once Upon a time collection. If you haven't seen that Salon background in person, let me just tell you - it's huge!!! It took me forever to colour it. But it looks great, doesn't it? ;) I used Maja design papers and distressed them with Tim Holtz distresser tool. I finally got the chance to use some of my brown flowers. I have quite a few but I never use them.

For this card I used:
  • colors: TH distress ink markers and distress ink pads
  • ink: archival black
  • watercolor paper: Langton HP 300g
  • design papers: Maja design
  • stamps: Lucky Edwin, Salon background (OAAT coll., 2013)
  • dies: Magnolia- view master, tilda ticket
  • flowers from I am rose, woc, LLC.

I’m entering this card into the following challenges:
  1. Simon says challenge blog: Anything goes
  2. Stamp and create with Magnolia: Take two
  3. Magnolia Mania: Vintage
  4. Bunny Zoe's crafts: Distress
Have fun! Hugs, t.
