Robyn's fetish Challenge #114- DISTRESSING

Happy Sunday, and Hello July!  boy that went fast huh?
Well, hubs is getting fitted for his Orthotic for his foot and ankle on Tuesday and probably coming home on Wednesday (since it will take 2 weeks to make the orthotic) YIPPEE SKIPPEE!!


This week at
we are
DISTRESSING
and our LOVELY sponsor is
the winner will receive
4 digis of their choice!


I used "In the Harbour"  I LOVE this image, 
(and she has a beautiful new lighthouse to go with it)

I made this card ahead of time and used it as my Husband's father's day card (which he spent in the hospital...like 11 years ago, he had his big heart attack on father's day...I will never tell him to "do what he wants" for father's day ever again, LOL)

OK, first the items used: all card stock is by STAMPIN' UP, Back ground stamp by STAMPIN' UP, Printed paper by K&CO.  Olive striped hemp by ELEMENTS. Distressing Inks by RANGER (Tim Holtz) and FIBER SCRAPS EZ Walnut stain. PRISMACOLOR pencils and blending pencils. 
Buttons from my stash.

I printed out the image and colored it in. Then covered it with the ez walnut stain, allowed it to dry. I stamped *Print pattern on to ivory card stock, with turquoise SU ink. Let dry. then also used the EZ walnut stain on that. Let that dry. Edged the Marigold morning card bash with I believe it was 'twigs" distress ink. Since I can not find my tonic paper distresser, I used a pocket knife, and went around scratching the edges of the print pattern background and my image (oh the sentiment is computer generated). then crumbled them up over and over a few times, then flattened them out. In the mean time I distressed the edge of the chocolate chip card stock. I also tore a piece of the glitter trimmed K&Co. paper.   I  wrapped the hemp around the stamped bkgd. piece 3 times. Glued that onto the base. Then I laid the K&Co. paper down under 2 of the hemp strands and over one, glued down. I took another piece of the hemp and tied a bow around the 3 strands. Then I took a sanding block, and sanded down my image piece. Then attached that to the chocolate chip card stock. then attached that to the card base, and glued on the 2 buttons.

NOTE:  Because the image hangs above the card, I should have written my message inside first, I didn't and to be able to write, I had to fold the card back wards, which weakened it's "hinge"...so learn from my mistake and put your message in first with any  hinge side hang-overs.


Thanks for visiting! comments appreciated :)

LOVE the warmly cherished feel to this card. The crinkles and wrinkles look like something kept FOREVER and brought out to remember a good time. I've used my fingernail or a scissor blade to distress my paper edges when I can't find the 'tool', it's good to know a pocketknife works just as well. Sending good vibes for your hubby's arrival home.
