Flourishes - In Distress

So the current Flourishes challenge is to distress something on your project - I've used distress inks & an edge distresser on mine, and it was fun to get messy.


Supplies: Flourishes stamp set - Dahlias; Memento Gray Flannel ink; Tumbled Glass & Milled Lavender distress inks; Spectrum Noir markers; Memory Box, Fancy Pants, and Bazzill papers; Mod Podge Dimensional Magic; Tonic Edge Distresser


I stamped the image on a distressed pattern cream panel (Fancy Pants) and lightly distressed the edges with the tool & inks. The floral patterned paper & cardstock were a lot more distress-able & it shows a lot more. I inked them lightly directly with the pad after cutting & distressing them. The vases have a thin layer of Dimensional Magic for that glassy gloss. I really like the layout & may have to convert it to a sketch :)

xoxo,
Jessi

Wow! This is gorgeous, Girl! Fantastic distressing, and the layout is so cool! I need to make an anniversary card for a friend to give to her husband, and this layout would be perfect for what I have in mind. I feel a CASE coming on! ;) I'm SO glad you played along with us in the Timeless Tuesday Challenge this week!
