LSC # 82 Distress Mania

Welcome back!  It is time to introduce a new challenge over at Lawnscaping!  So, do you like the Distressed look?!  There are so many ways to achieve this look!  We want you to show us your Distressed Project!

Here is my card!

I used the Critters on the Farm set by Lawn Fawn.  I think think is one of the cutest sets, and I have used it for many different projects.  To feature distressing on my project - I, first took a piece of wood grain card stock and two different colors of Distress Inks - Weathered Wood and Vintage Photo and just inked up an area big enough so I could stamp my barn image from the stamp set. Once I achieved the look I was going for, I colored with Copic Markers R29, E37, C5 and C7.  It makes it look like a vintage barn. I stamped, cut and colored my hay bale.  I also die cut some grass out of the green polka dot papers from Let's Polka.  I adhered all of these elements to a die cut piece of Sea Glass card stock die cut from the Stitched Journaling card die.  I also used my newest dies from Lawn Fawn the Spring Showers - the sun and one of the clouds.  I just LOVE that stitched border!  I adhered my main panel to a piece of white card stock that was die cut from what else - the stitched frame from the Femme Frames set from Mama Elephant!  Again, addicted!  Then, I adhered all of that to a piece of yellow polka dot paper also from the Let's Polka 6x6 pad.  All of this got adhered to a Sea Glass A2 size card base, and to add a little bit more distressing...I roughed up the edges of my card base, and added some Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges too.

OH!  and that sun - I took another piece of white wood grain card stock and used one of the new Prima Bloom Sprays in Sunshine to color the card stock and then used the sun die from Spring Showers to die cut it the texture and the color!!

Hope I have inspired you today!!  Our sponsor this week is the super awesome Lawn Fawn!  And, they are about to release new products!! YAY!

See you soon!
