Sunny Challenge 33

March 25, 2012

The challenge at Sunny Challenges and Creations for this week has been set by Libby.  She provided us with a sketch and all we had to do was add distressing –  inking, sanding, tearing etc.

I embossed a piece of Very Vanilla card stock using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  I sponged Early Expresso ink all over the pattern and along the edges of the card stock to give an aged appearance.  Then I used my distressing tool in the Cutter Kit on the edges.  This created a few tears  on the edges just for added  interest, then I scrunched the card stock a little to get some more dimension and sponged a little more Early Expresso ink over the creases.  I cut a strip of Well Worn Designer Series Paper and embossed it using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  Then I used my sanding block on the raised edges to take some of the pattern off the designer paper.  I punched Early Expresso card stock using the Lace Ribbon Border Punch, attached the sanded designer paper and then attached the whole piece to the Very Vanilla card stock.  I used my Paper Piercer and Mat Pack to the holes to insert the Early Expresso Brads.  I attached the Very Vanilla card stock to scored and folded Early Expresso card stock.

I really am not sure whether I like this one or not, what do you think?

I’m sure if you pop over and visit Vicky and Libby they will have something much more exciting for your inspiration.  Once you have created your card, scrapbook page or 3d item, then visit Sunny Challenges and Creations and add it to Mr. Linky.  As always I look forward to seeing your lovely work.

Bye for now, Kris.

    This is such a soft & lovely card Kris. Colours are beautiful. I didn’t realise that the middle section was DSP – WOW!
