SC 03312...

This week the challenge is set by Libby.  This is a sketch for you to work with and the other part of the challenge is to use distressing technique on your project
Distressing can be done several ways, here are a few techniques hints –

·         Gently rub a distressing ink pad with a sponge and rub ink around the edges of paper
·         Brush ink with a direct-to-paper technique (brush ink pad directly onto surface of paper with gentle strokes)
·         Crumple paper, flatten, and rub distress inks on paper. Paper can be sprayed with water and dried a heat tool to set
·         Sand the surfaces of your card stock to achieve an antique effect

Any of these techniques will give you an antique or vintage look which can vary with the colour and ink you use and how much you apply to the paper. So, have a bit of fun and create a project which utilises both the sketch and distressing techniques.

Your project is not limited to a card.

Now for our samples -

Now it’s your turn.
  Create your project and pop back and add it to Mr. Linky. We are looking forward to seeing all your gorgeous creations again this week.  Although, I must admit it is getting harder and harder to pick a Ray of Sunshine.
Happy Stampin!
 Vicky, Libby & Kris
