Fantasy Stampers - Distress It

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are ready for a great weekend. I wonder what you have planned? I am going to be working on the wedding invitations that I keep putting off. I need a good long time to craft and all my meals provided.

This is my inspiration piece  for the Fantasy Stampers Challenge "Distress It" that starts today. Why not come and join us and see what the rest of the wonderful design team has created for your inspiration.


This is not my usual type of card but I quite enjoyed a change in style. I had the backing paper in my stash and I distressed the edges with scissors. I had the hessian ribbon for a while as well it was nice to use it. I used two scraps of paper behind the stamped image and I aged them with Distress ink. I think I use Distress ink in every card I make  I just love the colours and their names. 


I stamped the Clarity stamp Live Love Laugh with Black Archival. I stamped a verse stamp round the edge with Perfect Medium and then heat embossed it with white powder. Then I inked over the piece with another Distress Ink. Finally I distressed the edge of the paper with scissors. 


Stop watch stamp was from stash I stamped it with black archival  I cut it out and covered it with glossy accents. 


This little stamp came with the stop watch I stamped it with black archival a few times I cut them out and covered them with glossy accents. You probably already know that Tempus Fugit is latin for time flys. 


I think this might be a card for a man I might add another sentiment when I decide who it is going to. 

I hope the rest of the week is good for you.

Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie
