Creative Inspirations DT (53) - Distressing
Charisma Cardz (6) - Mythical/Fantasy

Time for another challenge at Creative Inspirations and this time we want to see 'Distressing' on your projects. For this challenge we are being kindly sponsored by Stitchy Bear Stamps and our monthly sponsor Simon Says Stamp.

The DT were lucky enough to be given some digis from Stitchy Bear Stamps to play with and I chose this little Gothic fairy called 'Dareama'. As soon as I saw her I fell in love with her. I chose a plain cream base card to start with. Next I distressed and glittered a piece of black card and having ripped the edges of this gorgeous paper (that hurt!) I stuck it on top. I them embossed a piece of coredinations card and lightly sanded it before distressing and glittering the edges. Now onto the image which I resized to fit this Nestie label die. I coloured her with promarkers and added pink Glitter. After chalking around the image I used a marker pen to go around the edge of the Nestie. The flowers, leaves and butterfly have all been punched and I have added roses to the centres of the flowers. A touch of glitter glue on the roses finishes them off. I think this turned out rather well don't you? Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
