Had to do another one for the distress challenge! This one is showing one of the new releases, hot off the press! You can see all the new releases from this section of the catalogue at High Hopes. Just type in "hotp" in the long white box, click on the go hippo and all the new releases will come up. I couldn't link it here bcs I made up this post ahead of time, before they went into the catty.
The butterfly and flower are separate stamps. Actually, the flower is a single that I just repeated. I colored everything with my Copics and used brown dye inks along most of the edges to add that aged and distressed look that I love! I was hoping to channel Rach when I did this card (how did I do, Rach?) because she is one of the most inspiring card artists I have ever seen!
This card is bigger than I normally make, but I really wanted to show off that pretty paper from "Dena's Closet" (a pad I got on clearance at Mike's). I think it is six inches across by seven high. I had to use tabs to hold the back to the front. I didn't want them as part of my design so I adhered them to the inside.
Thanks for visiting my blog today! God loves you so much!
