How Distressing!

At CIC the challenge is to make a card using distressing. I used this beautiful butterfly stamp from Inkadinkado. I stamped it on kraft colored card stock, cut the wings so that they pop up and then crumpled the card stock around the butterfly and swiped a Vintage Photo ink pad over it to enhance the wrinkles. I also tore around the image and inked the edges. I used my distress tool to distress the edges of the base card and also the patterned card stock. I then inked the edges of both using Vintage Photo ink and a sponge. I made the flower by using Rose Creations dies, spritzing the card stock with water, distressing the flower with the end of a paintbrush and then painting it with Twinkling H2Os. Now I am VERY distressed! LOL! You can click here to see the challenge. http://clearlyistamp.typepad.com/my_weblog/
