SSS Wednesday Challenge - Distress It

Hello Lovely.  Today's card is for the Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday's Challenge - Distress It.  As we all know I love my Distress Inks and I just couldn't resist playing along with this challenge.  I also need to create a beautiful card for my Mom's Birthday, which is next week.  I think I succeeded in accomplishing both.


I started with a piece of Canson Acrylic paper and went about using the same Tim Holtz ink smooshing technique I used on Yesterday's Color Throwdown Card.  I chose Distress Inks in the colors Milled Lavender, Seedless Preserves, and Dusty Concord.  I smooshed some of each color on my Ranger Craft Mat and misted it with water before smooshing the paper onto the mat.  It was a game of layering colors until I had a look I was happy with.

Once the ink was layered and dried I added some Ranger Texture Paste in Transparent Matte using the Carta Bella Prairie floral stencil.  I needed some sparkle and shine, so I splattered on some Perfect Pearls in the color Perfect Pearl once my texture paste was dry.


I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment on to a white oval, die cut with my Stitched Oval dies from Simon Says Stamp and added it to the center of the panel.  I added a gob of foam tape to the back of the panel and adhered it to a charcoal gray card base.  To complete the card, I die cut a butterfly from some pearly purple specialty paper from my scrap stash, using the Technique Tuesday Happy Butterfly die.  I added a small bit of foam tape to the body of the butterfly and gently curved the wings up before adding it just under the sentiment.

Thanks for swinging by today.  Enjoy your weekend and find a little time to get creative.

  1. This is such a wonderful mixed media card, Stacy. Love the pink colors you've chosen and I really love the patterns and textures you created here. The sentiment frame and butterfly are beautifully placed on your awesome background. Very inspiring design. Thank you so much for playing with us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
