Hi there 🙂 Another Thursday has rolled around, and that means it’s time for a new challenge at C.R.A.F.T. This week, our theme is “Distress Your Project/Vintage”. And, as always, we have some generous sponsors with prizes for our lucky winners 🙂
I had a ton of fun making my card, as it’s been a long time since I beat up a card to give it a distressed/vintage look 🙂 I used Butterflies are Free, from Pickled Potpourri. I printed it on a parchment paper, then added some soft colors with watercolors. I messed around with my papers, and finally decided to make my own background paper (this card was made before a friend challenged me to use DP on every project I make this year), by stamping some Kaisercraft butterflies on some CS. The Cuttlebug script embossing folder worked well on this card, as there is a script in the background of the image. After embossing some kraft CS, I tore and distressed the edges of all the papers, then inked them with Distress Inks. I also inked a blue doily, which brought out the subtle blue in the image. I’ve recently got some new dies, so had to play. I cut a butterfly and a floral swag, which was placed under some strips of some ribbon and some new lace that I got. I added pearls in the centres of the flowers, as well as in the corners….because in my mind, pearls = vintage, lol. Hope you like this as much as I liked making it, and that you can have some fun with your own project!!
