Something Distressed...

Oh, dear! That title just sounds awful, doesn't it? LOL. Well, not to worry, all it means is that this week at Stamp Something, we are challenging you to create projects with a distressed look! You can use inks, tear your paper, or any other way of creating a distressed look you can think of. This week, we're being sponsored by Stamp and Create, so be sure to pop on over to the Stamp Something Challenge blog to see how you can enter to win!

Stamp and Create very generously allowed each of the dt to chose a Wags 'n Whiskers stamp to play with. The adorable Thinking of You, reminds me of my cat, Emmalee, as she likes to drape herself over you when you are trying to do something, so I was thrilled for a chance to play with it!

I colored the image with copic markers, and then used a white gel pen to highlight the eyes (going back in with some white makes them pop). I carefully cut out the image, and used pop dots to layer it onto a frame made out of a nestabilities circle die and a labels 3 die. The pretty designer papers are from the Cocoa Mint collection by Cloud 9 Designs. The layered flowers, leaves, and gemstones were also colored with copic markers to make them match the rest of the project.

Copic markers used:

Challenges I participated in with this card:

Stamp Something - distressing
Wags 'n Whiskers - Pop it up
Midnight Madness - MMSC45 (sketch)
Cute Daisy May - anything goes
Creative Card Crew - going dotty (dots on papers)
Copic Creations - favorite technique (brunette hair, coloring embellishments, caucasian skin)
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - anything goes

Don't forget, my blog candy ends on Sunday, so be sure to head over here to enter if you haven't already!
