Cuttlebug Challenge 16 - Distressing



Another great challenge from the Cuttlebug Blog we were supposed to make a card using distressing techniques (whatever we preferred) I used Artylicious CD Rom Damask Delights as back ground paper along. Took some coredinations card stock in a plum colour embossed it through the cuttlebug and sanded it down, Next I tore 3 circles of blue coredinations card stock embossed them through the cuttlebug. scrunched them up and then layered them into a rose shape. (technique i learned from Allison thanks Ali) tore a couple of leaves and added a button with some string tied through it. Then I used my new Tim Holtz Distress Stickles to outline the flower. Added a peel off greeting coloured in with a permanent marker.

Thanks for visiting!!!!
