Good Morning! The Design Team @ Our Creative Corner has another challenge for you! It's a two parter: theme and sketch. The theme: distress to de-stress, how cute huh? So, check out the sketch, and distress your paper, embellishments, sentiments and submit an entry! The sketch is very user-friendly! So, create something and work-out your stress at the same time!
Here is what I have done. The pattern paper is from Basic Grey. The sentiment is from Paper Trey Ink. The solid cardstock, ink, die cuts, rhinestones, and brad are all from Stampin' Up!. (as always, if you need a complete list of materials, please email me privately.)
The flower, was simple to create. I used three pieces of pattern paper for each flower shape. I stacked them on top of each other and cut them all at the same time with my Big Shot die cutting machine. I used the Fun Flowers die. After cutting out the shapes, I stacked them on top of each other, and I punched a hole in the center for my brad. I spritz the top flower with water and began scrunching-up the flower. I continued to the last flower. Then I began un-scrunching the flowers in reverse order. (I posted a tutorial here.)
I used two different mediums to distress my paper. I used a sponge and Crumb Cake classic ink from Stampin' Up! first. Then, I used this white paint writer stick. You know, the kind they use at car dealerships to write on the windshields. That! I like how sometimes it comes out thin and sometimes it just slaps on. Random, and not uniform. I distressed the flower once it was open.
Thank you for taking the time to see what I have made. And I hope to see an entry of yours @ OCC!
