Hope everyone had a fabulous 4th of July! The hubby is on vacation this week and we are tackling some big projects around this old house. I wanted to make sure to get my Art Impressions card finished for this week, so I stole a little time to myself. It is for Challenge #22, distressing.
My card started with a base of Kraft and my distressed designer papers are from My Mind's Eye. To get the scissors to work better during distressing edges, I always spritz with a bit of water to dampen them. The rest I did by tearing. My Art Impressions stamps used are M1500 Country Window Front and Q1704 Scrappie Front. I did not have a sentiment that would work for me here, so I had to go with a 1$ one from Michaels. I used a white gel pen to highlight his eyes and collar after coloring everything with Copics. My only embellishments are some green DewDrops.
Next, I would like to thank my dear friend Linda Payne, for awarding me this awesome badge. Doesn't it look luscious? Since she has awarded it to many of the people I would have, I am kind of at a loss here to come up with 8 people! Here goes, my sweet blogging friends!
