Hello..hope your having a lovely week so far. The last two weeks has just flew past and its now its time for another challenge at Elphine House Australia!!
This time the theme is "Distressed"
Now as you might know i am not big on distressing. I love looking at cards that are distressed but when it comes to me doing one i end up putting it in the bin because i feel it doesn't look right. Well this is exactly what happened and the first card is now in the blue recycling bin outside...hence the title of my post!!
Here is my second attempt and i used only a little distressing of edges with my distressing tool then used some Bue Acrylic Paint, Weathered Wood Distress Ink and Course White Embossing Powders...All in little amounts! I have used "Fairy Faye, Make a Wish" from Elphine House Australia
Image - EHA Fairy Faye, Make a Wish
Papers - Teresa Collins - Stationary Noted and Plain Blue Paper and Acetate for wings.
Dies/Punches - Cricut Wild Card Cartridge, Marianne Design Tga and Buttons, Fourishes and small flower Dies, Spellbinders D Lites Flourish Trim, Memory Box Butterfly Delights, Small Butterfly punch.
Embellishments - Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, Blue and White Ribbon, Lace and Paper Ribbon, Gems, Blue Acrylic Paint, Weather Wood Distress Ink, White and Clear Embossing Powers, Star-lite Gloss Varnish, Glamour Dust Glitter. I made the Decorative Pin myself using loose beads, spacers and pin and crimp bead.
Phew..that was some list!
Here is a close up of the image. I have done a bit of decoupage on her wings using the gloss varnish and glamour dust on them and then shaping them to lift from the image.
