Crafty Sentiments Digi Challenge Day

We are having a new challenge at the Crafty Sentiments Digi Blog.  This week the challenge is to use distressing on your project.  Head over to the blog to read more about it and check out the beautiful cards made by my fellow DT members. I would encourage you to participate along with us.

For my card, I used the "Pat with Flowers" digi from Crafty Sentiments.  I paper-pieced Pat's dress, colored her with Copic markers, then added some gems.  I used a floral paper and several other plain color cardstocks.  I honestly don't remember what I did other than sponge them with a variety of different Tim Holtz Distress inks.  That's the fun part of distressing.  You just keep adding ink colors until you are happy with the result.  I ran the tan panel through a Cuttlebug embossing folder and used a border punch on the other panel.  I completed the card by adding a ribbon, charm, and sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers.
