Just Magnolia #16 - Distressing

This week our sponsor is Jacobi Drachten

and they are offering this fabulous prize of 4 adorable stamps:


We have another nice easy challenge for you this week - distressing, so lets get dirty lol. We want to see some inking, sandpapering, scrunching you name it as long as your creation has a Magnolia image on and some distressing.

I don't distress much, so whenever I have to do distressing on a card I'm terrified I'll mess things up, lol.

Well this time I had a blast creating a card with distressing! Inking, scrunching, tearing, you name it, I did it! I even stamped with some bubble wrap and stamped a border around the adorable Tilda image using my fingerprint! Yeah, I did look like a criminal that had been fingerprinted (and I still haven't gotten all the ink off of my fingers), but I had FUN!!

It was fun trying something a little different and it was the first time I've coloured an image in black & white and I had a BLAST!! Fun, fun, fun!

I used the sketch from 'Everybody Art Challenge'. Love all the layers! And I'm also entering this card into the 'Simon Says Stamp' challenge blog which also is distressing! (Love combining challenges ;o) )

I hope a lot of you will join us again this week.
