Distress and De-stress!



This week's challenge is brought to us by our lovely Diva Divine, Kim Reid! She wants us to distress (our paper!) and de-stress (by being creative!). I love distressing the edges of my layers, whether by scraping it with a metal ruler or sponging with brown dye ink. Both ways are fun! Create along with us, link up a card to the High Hopes Blog, and your name will be entered in a draw to win two free stamps!
I used Copics to color my Norman Goat image and inked the edges with Chestnut Brown Distress Ink. Norman is from the Feb. release. DP by Basic Grey. Balloon Martha Stewart Punch on glossy cs. I had previously colored on the white glossy cs with a pink Copic marker and then added droplets of clear blending ink to give it an alcohol ink effect.



Thanks for looking today!
God loves you!

  16. Oh my! I do love the old goat! :) Calling someone an old goat is a huge joke in my family. I must have missed this guy when he was released! Must go back and take another look.

    I love the distressed look with him. It's great!
