Welcome to another week of Lawnscaping. I’m super excited about this challenge (sorry, I know I say that about a lot of the challenges, but I really do mean it… ha!) because its theme very near and dear to my heart… distressing!
This week, I chose to go the more shabby chic route, but you know that I’m all about distressing in all sorts of ways. (Distress Inks for example. Hehe! You can download my e-book No-Stress Distress Inks here, by the way.) I used my Tim Holtz edge distresser + Pumice Stone Distress Ink on almost all of the edges on this card to add to the shabby look. Here’s what I came up with:
The stitching on this card took a long time, but I think the final effect is worth it for sure. I stamped the largest flower from Lawn Fawn’s Judy’s Blooms in grey memento ink, pierced holes and sewed over it. The flower wasn’t highlighted enough from the card for my liking, so I applied a couple of layers of paint to the petals (it was a mixture of water, white paint and Malted Milk paint for the perfect light cream wash).
Supplies used on the card:
