Sir Stampalot Challenge - September 2010


Over at the Sir Stampalot Challenge this month the topic is "distress it".  Do I need and excuse to get my paper distresser tool out???  I have used various tiny scraps of paper from my scrap box and distressed all the edges, hacking a bit more in places for extra texture, and all the pieces were then edged with a Midnight Black Versamagic ink pad to highlight the distressing.  The image is of a little bear called Squeak from the Daisy and Dandelion range and I have simply coloured him with a mixtures of Promarkers and Copics to give him some shading.  I have made the power flower using my Cricut and again distressed the edges a bit, scrumpled the layers up and edged with the same Midnight Black ink pad.  The card is simply finished off with a sentiment off the computer, gems and some fabric hearts.

This card also fits the following challenges:

Stamptacular - Distress it
Pear Tree Designs - Animals
Spoon Full of Sugar - Anything with an animal
Fab n Funky - What 'eva
Oldie but a Goodie - New beginnings and an old stamp - I would just like to wish the Oldie and Goodie Design Team success in their new challenge blog venture.
