Happy Tuesday everyone!  We have a NEW CHALLENGE for you today over at THE STAMPING BOUTIQUE CHALLENGE and it is to USE DISTRESSING on your creation – so rip it, tear it, crumple it, sand it, use distress ink, fray it, etc.  You know what to do!

You have until Monday, April 16 at 11am EST to enter your creation at THE STAMPING BOUTIQUE CHALLENGE.  While we would LOVE to see you use an image from THE STAMPING BOUTIQUE, it is not required to enter our challenge.  However, if you do use one, you will get 2 entries per project for purposes of our winner’s draw.  You also get 2 entries for each layout entered.

For my card today, I used “Goth Girl on a Wall” from THE STAMPING BOUTIQUE.  I had such fun coloring this fabulous image with my Copics and Fiskars glitter gel pens.  I cut the image with Nesties as well as background DP from Kaisercraft, which I also distressed with my Distress It electric tool.  I used Coredinations papers for the 2 half pieces that I embossed with Cuttlebug and Sizzix folders and then I sanded them with my sanding wedge.  Sentiment is from Verve and I have cut it with Nesties and then distressed by daubing with Tim Holtz distress ink.  Ribbon is from SU, rest of CS is Bazzill, heart pin is from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Flowers are from Prima and have been distressed by adding black Memento ink to leaves and flower.  I hope you like it and come play along.

HOUSE OF GILLI – flowers
MAKE IT MONDAY – anything goes
PAPER PRETTIES – lots of layers (8)
SMUDGY ANTICS – anything goes (no cute)
TAMMY SCRAPIN CORNER – anything goes plus embossing
