Just Magnolia Tutorial Challenge – Distressing

Woohoo – the new monthly challenge starts today over on the brand new Just Magnolia Tutorial Challenge blog.

Our first challenge is Distressing, and is based on the fabulous tutorial that Kim did for us last month. In future the monthly tutorials and challenges will be posted on the new blog, to keep everything together and hopefully less confusing with have the 3 challenges running.

I was delighted when Kim agreed to be our first Featured Stamper as I have been so keen to try and learn how she manages to get such a superb finish to her cards. Her tutorial rocks, I did it lol!! I was amazed with just how easy it is to distress once I had followed Kim’s tutorial – I even got the Glimmer Mists out too (talk about being brave!!)

The papers I have used on the card as well as the stamps came in my DT kit from Create4Fun, I knew as soon as I saw the paper that it would be perfect for this challenge. There was no matching papers so I dug out a script stamp and used that for the 2nd layer under Tilda.

The roses were sprayed with pearl Glimmer mist and gold Radiant Rain (got a bit carried away lol)

A close up of the gorgeous lace ribbon that I picked up at Hobbycraft a couple of weeks ago – love it!
