DCM Challenge - Most Distressing!
Well it's Friday again and I am pleased to be able to fit in another Daring Cardmakers Challenge.. though I probably shouldn't have been making cards when I have designing to do, card demos to create and three magazine adverts to get done and sent out..oh well it's the weekend I'll get it all done then!!!
Heres this weeks challenge from Keryn:
it's my turn to Distress you all, or at least your cards with this weeks dare. You can make a card for any season, any holiday, any occasion but you need to use either a fingernail, curled edges, sandpaper, tearing, anything you like really as long as looks like it's had a fair bit or wear and tear.
This something I don't do that often so I had fun getting my Basic Grey precision file set on to this card!
I used black card for the base and then printed three papers from my download Paper Blossom onto white card then I got to work with the precision file set around the edges and just generally over the paper! I added the Hey! sentiment from the matching alphabets on the download and didn't cut them out that carefully, which was quiet liberating!!, so they looked a bit distressed to. I like the effect of the black base card against the colours, it's something I'm trying out for one of my demos on the next Ideal World show..we shall see!.
Today is the last day you have to have a chance of winning my Blog Candy to celebrate hitting 10,000 views so if you haven't left a comment yet get going to the blog candy post and get your comment down. Ian is going to draw the winners name tomorrow!
Well I'd best get back to real work I suppose, I haven't got that much time left to get things done as we are going to a 'Ball' tonight and I have to start getting ready early so I have a chance of even looking reasonable!! Wish me luck with the new high heels..I'll take the camera in case there are any moments worth sharing.
Enjoy your weekend!
