Cupcake craft challenge #58 – DT card

CCC challenge 58 - distressing

CCC challenge 58 - distressing (close up)

This week over at the cupcake craft challenge our theme is ‘distressing’.  Now as regular visitors will know this is something I’m not completely comfortable with, however, that is the whole point of a challenge I suppose!!  For my card I used my new sugar nellie christmas manga image called ‘miss clause’ (available from funky kits) and coloured her with my promarkers adding stickles to the furry trim.  The plain papers I used are all DCWV (as they have a white core) and I embossed the green paper with the cuttlebug snowflakes embossing folder and the red paper with the swiss dots embossing folder and distressed them by rubbing them with a sanding block.  The small strip of patterned paper is by PM from the ‘home for christmas’ paper pack.  The tree brad is woodware and the ribbon is from my stash.  I used my dovecraft punch to cut out the snowflakes and the adhesive stones are PM.  The sentiment is craftwork cards and I used my SU oval punches to cut it out. 

I can’t wait to see your distressed projects and look forward to visiting all your blogs.  Thanks for stopping by today.
