Whiff of Joy Challenges # 90....Distressing...'Tis The Season...!


Good morning crafty friends! Still no computer yet, but I think I am going to take the plunge and get an iMac. Hope it i s the right decision....eekkk! I hope to be able to visit again real soon...I miss you all terribly!

Well, today we have a new challenge over at the Whiff of Joy Challenge blog. We would like to see Distressing on your creations and you have the next 2 weeks to join us! Please remember that to be eligible for any prize you must use a WOJ image. The WOJC DT have made such gorgeous creations so pop by and see what inspiring creations they have made for this challenge!

So for my card I decided to use one of my Henry the Mouse images that are just so cute but for some reason I have neglected to use them! I coloured Henry with my copics and cut him out. I added some "Dimensional Snow paint" to the fur trim of his hat and then sprinkled it with Glamor Dust while it was still wet! I Also used some new Echo Park pp that I just LOVE called Merry Christmas. to Distress the card I roughed up the edges of the paper with my Tim Holtz distress tool and applied some Distress Crackle paint in Picket Fence. I also went around the paper and sponged with gold Metallic Rub-ons. To embellish I used ribbon from my stash and prima flowers with half-pearls. The green ones where white and I coloured them with a green Copic marker. The sentiment on the front of the card is an element from the Echo Park pp pack!


Here is the inside...very simple and I didn't distress the inside papers as it makes the card very difficult to close properly....the sentiment is a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps sentiment!


Thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card! I hope you can join us at the WOJ challenges!
