Distressing challenge at Incy Wincy

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and got lots of nice crafty presents. This week at Incy Wincy our challenge is Distressing and we are sponsored by Bearly Mine Designs who are opffering the lucky winner 2 digi packs of their choice.

I  have kept my card very simple, I have used some of the fab paper from Bearly Mine distressed the edges with my scissors and then inked itwith tattered rose distress ink. The butterfly is cut from another sheet of the paper and I have sponged the edges with distress ink. The cream oval has been embossed with divine swirls and then randomly inked, then I have covered it with clear embossing powder to give it a sheen. The sentiment has been inked to match as have the pearls.

I hope you will join in with our challenge don't forget to check the challenge blog for some more inspiration from the fab DT girls.

A Birthday Card

 Boy am I sick ofmaing Christmas cards now thank god I'm almost done 6 more to go, I've had a break from them to make this card for my Brother in law who's birthday is Boxing day. As soon as I saw this image from Kenny K I just had to get it it reminds me so much of my BIL lol in a nice way. I have coloured him with promarkers and a silver sakura pen. Not sure where the paper is from its a digi one but I didn't save it with the artists name, the colours are more vibarant in real life no decent light to get a good photo. I have used 2 different embossing folders on the orange and green card the large stars are a cuttlebug one and the small stars are a crafts too one.
