His Love for Ewe

For our challenge this week over at A Spoon Full of Sugar we are asking you to get distressing! This could be tearing, distressed edges or adding an aged effect with chalks or inks.

For my card this week I have used the adorable High Hopes stamp.... His Love for Ewe. I have all the newest release stamps over in my store. My image has been stamped in Memento then coloured with Prisma colour pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. The gorgeous papers are from the luscious new My Minds Eye Signature Christmas stack. I have used my Heidi Swapp distressing tool and also chalked the edges in VersaMagic Jumbo Java. The sentiment was printed direct onto my cardstock from Word. The paper is very textured with sparkles so added a little more with Stickles to my image and also around the frame of the nestabilities. To finish I have added these gorgeous Prima flowers and SU Rhinestone brads.
Sorry this is such a short post but I have a busy day ahead. We are off to Romford Dogs tonight with friends too.... should be fun! I will be back very late tonight to update you on a few changes to my DT at Bunny Zoe's Crafts and also to thank a few peeps for awards I have received over the weekend.

Gary if you read this post..... we miss you already!

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Hugs,
