Good morning crafters! and Happy New Year to you all! Today see's a new DT post with some brand new goodies from Julie.
This month I have recieved some GORGEOUS papers
oooooh I didnt know which ones to play with first!! Some Graphic 45- Old Curiosity Shoppe Collection (OMG sooooooo Lovely!) some Tim Holtz Distress Collection, Coodinations card stock, and also a few papers from Aged & Confused Sublime Collection and finally BasicGrey. All of them beeeeeautiful! Then also a lovely stamp from Stampendous
So my little stash was crying out for a distressed card I thought, and with such gorgeous papers it was so hard to choose! But I decided to go with some from the Graphic 45 collection- ( My Favourite!)
.....and here you are...
I chose a background paper distressed the edges and inked with Tim Holtz walnut stain and glued into place, I then chose THE most gorgeous butterfly paper that again I distressed, inked and curled the edges to and attached to the top left of my card. I stamped my image using Tim Holtz Walnut Stain and then coloured in by putting a big splodge of the same ink onto my glass mat and coloured in with a simple paint brush and water.....seemed fitting really painting paint brushes lol. I printed a sentiment I thought would suit my image onto a piece of coordinations cardstock, and followed suit by inking and distressing, I curled the sentiment at both ends and attached into place, then finished off with a small gold cherub.. this is actually a button I snipped the hoop off the back and glued with cosmic shimmer,
and there we have it...an "Arty" distressed card.
