Scrapbook Sister Card Challenge 33 - Distressing

Hi!  I'm so thrown this week what with the bank holiday on Monday, goodness knows what I'll be next week after the second long weekend in a row!!

Anyway, here we are on Wednesday already which means it's time for this weeks Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge, which this week is


There are so many distressing techniques out there, but I went all out and did quite a few for my card!!

First off, here's the complete card

I ruffed up the edges of all the CS and papers with my scissors before sewing round them all with white thread

Then printed the Flower Mask Digi, coloured with copics an
d went over it with crackle paint.  Once it had dried I rubbed Black Soot Distress Ink into the cracks... although this hasn't shown up too well on the photos :-(

I stamped the greeting and then distressed it with Black Soot Distress Inks - the roses got away with it as they were though :-).  The orgnaza ribbon was tied in a bow and I attached a flower charm to the centre of the bow with thread and stuck a black gem on with Glossy Accents

I then wond some ribbon round a wooden skewer and adhered this, and a second flower  to the mask with silicon glue, before sticking the mask onto the card with more silicon.  An extra length of ribbon hangs from the skewer.

Then I went all straight on the inside and used my wrought iron MS border punch and a Marianne Creatables Die along with a Papermania sentiment

Hope you like it, thanks for stopping by
