Plate Card

Challenges

Creative Card Crew (47) - Distressed/Aged
Simon Says - It's So Distressing

This is my first attempt at a 'plate card' using a template I bought a few weeks ago. I have also had another go at distressing and I must say I don't think I am any good at it. I prefer my cards looking 'new and clean'. To me I think this just looks a mess. I used distress inks around the edges and on the image and even the flowers, however, looking at this picture I realise I forgot to distress the stand. Oh well, I'll have to do that later..... or.... throw the whole thing in the bin!!!

What a cool card design. The fairy image is fabulous and I think your distressing looks great! Regarding distressing, it's all what pleases your eye. To me, a card doesn't look finished if there isn't a little ink on the edges - LOL!! Maybe try inking just the edge and not so far into the panel and by starting with just a bit you will warm up to it. Anyway, it's a great piece of work and we are happy you could join in the distressing fun with the Creative Card Crew this week.
