Fitztown - Distress



'Distress' is the theme over at the Fitztown Challenge Blog so please come along and join us. I used the image Wild 6 which you can buy here.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers and then tore the image out - you can't get more distressed than that, right? lol I then used Black Soot Distress Ink on the torn edges. The card blank is an 8x8 square by Joanna Sheen. My Crafter's Companion embossalicious folders came into play. I embossed a sheet of white paper, with a trellis type pattern, as the base of the mat and then used a sheet of Black Magic Core-dination card for the background to the wolf. I used the leaves embossing folder on this and rubbed the surface until the green showed through the black. I also tore round the sides making the green visible on the edges. When I matted it on to the embossed white I raised it on foam pads so that it stood out more. The wolf image was set against the background and then I generated the sentiment on the computer, tearing the edges and distressing as before.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Creative Moments Challenge - Anything Goes
DigiStamps4Joy - Animals
Artbymiran Challenge - Anything Goes
Brown Sugar Challenge - Anything Goes
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes
Treasured Times Rubberstamp Challenges - Anything Goes

Thanks for coming along, it's much appreciated. Hazel x
