Just Magnolia Special Monthly Challenge - Distressing

This month we were thrilled to have Chris Dark from Sketching Stamper to do a tutorial for our special monthly challenge.  The tutorial was posted on the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog yesterday so if you missed it you can find it here.  Don't forget the prize for the monthly challenge is a biggie - $50 to spend on anything you fancy at Simon Says Stamp!!  Hope you can join us this month.jm-magnolia-distressed

I went in your face bright with this card - need your shades here girls.  I have been wanting to use this DP for ages and never felt brave enough.  I have also used my favourite Magnolia image (for now till I get to the NEC tomorrow then she may be neglected for a while lol).  I just adore this stamp.jm-magnolia-distressed2

I hyperventilated, broke out in hives, had a panic attack and nearly passed out whilst distressing the paper!!  I must have had a brain storm cos I even RIPPED it, nearly had heart failure when that happened so had to make the best of a bad job - I ripped some more then threaded some ribbon through eyelets to try and salvage it.  Oh Lordy Lordy - I soooo don't do distressing rofl.jm-magnolia-distressed1

Recipe:
Stamp: Magnolia Dinner Tilda from Dies to die for
Paper: Little Yellow Bicycle
Tools: Cuttlebug damask embossing folder, eyelets, cropodile, EK Success swirl punch, Nestibilities, EK Success scallop border punch, and before I totally weak at the knees a Tim Holtz distressing tool.
Embellies: Are all from November's Crafty Feeling kit - aren't those rhinestone oval buttons just divine!!!  I also used some Liquid Pearls on her little necklace and bracelet.



Thanks for stopping by,
