Distressed

Not so much me - the card! Cupcake Crafts challenge this week is to distress. So I distressed all the edges on my card, cept for the stamped image.
I was talking about these cool stamps from Inkadinkado that I bought at Joanns, if you look, you can see the larger image is made up of smaller spooky images. So I stamped in a really pretty orange from my colorbox petal points, then cut it out and added popdots to it. I added an Anna Griffin journal spot, some thin dot ribbon and bobunny double dot cardstock. I cut out a couple small stars with my cricut Plantin cartridge, and added a button. Then I used a few old stash letters to finish it off- adding in a touch of hand doodling to add a bit more. I also inked the edges of my card with cocoa, and added the roughed edges by running a nail along the edges to give them that worn look.


Thanks for dropping by!
