4CC #329 - Distress

Thursday, December 15, 2016

Happy Thursday!

It's time for a new challenge at 
4 Crafty Chicks!

Tamie is our hostess today and she wants to see
Distress!


Distress can be distressing paper, making it rough and uneven along the edges or by inking around the edges of paper to make it look old or worn.



STAMPS: Sentiment (Stamplorations); holly (Paper Sweeties).
PAPER: Cream card base; Patterned Paper (Stash).
INK: Black Tuxedo (Memento). Tea Dye distress ink (Tim Holz); Copics.
EXTRAS: Teapot die (Paper Sweeties); Doily (Lifestyle Crafts); Rectangle dies (Lil Inkers Designs); Bow (Lil' Inkers Designs); Holly die (Paper Sweeties); Paper distresser (Tim Holz); Red gems. 

I decided to make a vintage type Christmas card for my DT card assignment of distressing.  I distressed the edges of the patterned papers and also inked up the edges with Tea Dye for inky distress.  

I also wanted to FINALLY play in the Coffee Lovers Winter Blog Hop again.  I've missed the last several.  Something always seems to be going on. So now's my chance.


FOR FOLLOWING CHALLENGES:

Now hop over to the Hen house and check out my teamies' projects and link up your own project showcasing "Distressing"!  

4 Crafty Chicks Blessings!
