Distress It! at Fantasy Stampers

A new challenge starts today at Fantasy Stampers - Distress It!. I love the technique of distressing, you can either be soft and gentle, or shabby chic or go real crazy, get down dirty. I think this card is between the latter two. I'm so sorry for the black areas on the picture, it is actually gold embossing and even after several attempts with the photography the gold still looks black, unlike in real life where it is bright shiny gold.
Plain cream card  plus two pieces of the same card. Main card, I used a Harlequin stamp with Worn Lipstick DI, 2nd generation random stamping. Mat card was embossed in an embossing folder - brushed with Brushed Corduroy DI The edges of the mat card were scraped with the inside of a pair of old scissors, then the brushed Corduroy was rubbed on the edges.  Ribbon and bow, rose and hat pins added top the mat card. The main image was torn, brushed with Brushed Corduroy around the edges.  French Rose stamp from Inkylicious stamped with Versamark Heat embossed using white detail powder. Worn Lipstick  DI rubbed all over the card - Resist Technique I sprinkled Gold EP and sprinkled pink and white Frantage EP - heat embossed Curled up the edges, added to the card.  I hope you like it and forgive the lack of photography for this particular card. Please pop over to Fantasy Stampers to see the wonderful inspiration for the Design Team, we would love for you to enter this challenge, if your stressed then go for it, get down and get DISTRESSED!
