Distressed For AYSI...
August 12, 2022
It’s a new challenge at As You See It! We have a recipe challenge and are charged with using watercolor, floral stamps, bright colors, pattern paper and a punch/die.
I started by watercoloring a background of bright pink. I then stamped a black daisy image on it. It came out distressed looking so when life gives you lemons…I decided to embrace the distress! I grabbed some kraft cardstock for the base and roughed up the edges a bit as well as die cutting the daisy image with my deckled edges die. Using some granny apple green pattern paper, I die cut a stitched jumbo fishtail and attached to the card base. I attempted to distress the edges a bit but the pattern paper is thin so I gave up quickly!
I had great debate about adding a sentiment. By happy accident, I found one that had a bit of a distress to it which I didn’t notice at first. I stamped the sentiment and started to panic! I thought I had moved the sentiment and messed up the whole card – but – that is exactly the way the stamp is supposed to look – old fashioned typed lettering that is a bit off. See, happy accident! I popped up the daisy image then added a bit of black bling and was done.
