Everybody-Art-Challenge No. 65 - Distressing

I am so shocked and happy, I have made it onto the Everybody-Art-Challenge Design Team. As this is the first design team I have ever been part of and know nothing about Yahoo Groups, this weekend has been a steep learning curve. To add to my confusion the group is in German and although I studied the language for A-Level, that was 20 years ago and have forgotten everything. Thank goodness for google translate! This weeks challenge is to make something using the distressing technique. I have chosen to make a card using the colour scheme black, red, silver and white and have used last weeks sketch #64. To make the card I have used: Card/Paper - 6x6" white card, Bristol Board Extra Smooth 250gsm, Basic Grey Scarletts Letter (Black), Pine Cone Press textured card stock PP9172 (Red), Oriental patterned paper, Stardream paper (Silver) Image - Manga 2 - Sugar Nellie (Funky Kits), Sentiment - clear stamp free in a magazine Medium - Copic Ciao - E00, E21, E20, R32, R37, R59, C1, W1, W3, Ranger Distress Inks - Mahogany (background), Black (edges) Gelly Roll white pen (to distress the flower) Dies/ Embossing - Nestabilities Label Four, Cuttlebug Circles Embossing folder (black background and flower) Tools - Scissors to fray the edges of the paper, Emery board to remove some of the colour off of the embossed design Embellishment - Lace, Graphite satin ribbon, red grosgrain ribbon, red gems, red flower from stash Check out the inspirational designs from the other design team members. A direct link to each of their blogs can be found on my side bar. I hope you like my card. Please leave a message if you have time as its always nice to receive feedback and visit all your blogs.
