Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers are feeling STRESSED!

OK, maybe not stressed. I meant DIStressed! We want to see your creations using distressing techniques this fortnight over at Snarky Stampers! 


Making this card a couple of weeks ago set off a 'distressed phase' in my crafting. My Tonic distress tool has gotten quite the workout! I used a pre-coloured digi from Jade Dragonne's Deviantart. 


Supplies: JadeDragonne Peacock Princess digi; PTI sentiment; Peacock Feathers distress ink; Market Street Stamps burlap background; Tim Holtz bubbles stencil; Dreamweaver embossing paste; Sakura Stardust glitter pen; rhinestones, glitter button, ribbon from stash


I had a heck of a time getting a clear close-up picture - you can see where I've added glitter, even though it's fuzzy. Besides distressing the edge of the Princess panel, I rolled the corners. I also tore the edge of the embossed card stock. The background was partially inked and dropped onto the card base purposely (I know! lol) to get an uneven impression. 

You've got 2 weeks to link up (by October 3rd) - and stop by & say hello to my sistahs:



And we are super pleased to have SANDRA with us this week as our guest designer! She's a former Drunken Stamper team mate, and it's great to have her along to play :)

xoxo,
Jessi

Distressed to perfection, Jessi. And the image is shimmered up perfectly! And remember, some of the Sisters WERE feeling stressed by this challenge! Not you, obviously. ;)

Great distressing and love how you curled up the pp. I also find it difficult to take a good shot of the all the glitters and I can see yours clearly, Jessi!
