Cute Card Thursday




The challenge this week at Cute Card Thursday is Getting Edgy- to distress the edges of your card, sew, sand. tear etc


Now for this I went for a nice subtle form of distressing- any of you who know Kath will have already seen this technique on her blog and she kindly put a link to the Hero Arts blog where you can see a great video of it.

I embossed swirls on my paper then used distress inks to create the colour effect. I also distressed the half flower that my gorjuss girlie is resting on.
I am glad someone is resting cause it isn't going to be me- still have those 21 dog cards to make, and a couple of others and some DT work to do and also promised myself I would do some painting- still not finished the hall, then I have to get my stuff ready for the dog show tomorrow..... no rest for the wicked then
Have a good weekend whatever you are up to

Hi Allison

Lovely card and colours.

I think those little "ticket" sentiments are great too. Where do those come from?

Sounds like you have lots to keep you busy!!!

Love Jules xx
