I noticed a couple of challenges this week with a distressing theme, so I had to get out my TH Distress Inks.
The first picture I have taken outside, because it is a beautiful day and the colours show up so well. Unfortunately the sparkle from the Enchanted Gold embossing powder didn't show at all, so I took a second photograph indoors to try and pick up a bit of the sparkle.
The images I have used are from an Inkadinkado set called "Garden Delights" and the sentiment is from a Papertray Ink set called "Mega Mixed Messages".
I stamped the dragonly in black and heat embossed with it Heat It Up Enchanted Gold powder and I stamped the foliage with versamark and used the same embossing powder.
I placed a die from the Nestabilities Labels 4 set over the image and then distressed using Tim Holtz distress inks "Dried Marigold" and "Wild Honey". I then drew around the die and cut out the shape. Looking at the card, I wish I had left part of the dragonfly wings overlapping the white border.
I am entering this into the following challenges:-
Crafty Cardmakers - Distressed!
Quixotic Challenges - How Distressing!
I thought I saw another challenge for distressing this week, but I can't find it again.
Enjoy your day!
Best wishes, Clare xx
