MIX IT UP CHALLENGE #3 DISTRESSING

Hello There Crafty Friends,
I want to let you all know that a challenge is going on at...
https://mixitupchallenge.blogspot.com/
The theme for this challenge is...
Distressing (Ink or Tool)

Here's my inspiration card for the challenge...
Here's what I used to make it...
Marco Raffine Colored Pencils
Unbranded Clear Stamps
Canson Watercolor Paper 
Staedtler Watercolor Crayons
Yasutomo Niji Pearlescent Watercolor Paint
Watercolor Brush/Water Tank - something like these
We R Memory Keepers Precision Press Stamping Tool
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad 'Tea Dye'
Memento Dew Drop 'Rich Cocoa' Ink Pad
Prima Marketing Distressing Tool 
Darice Hemp Twine
Charms, Chord and Gauge
Teal/Navy Cardstock Paper

Here's how I made it...
I cut a piece of watercolor paper the size I needed for my card. Then used the stamping tool to stamp the images where I wanted them. Using the distress ink first on the stamps, I stamped the images on the paper. Then I used rich cocoa ink for a darker outline. After the ink was dry, I colored the images with colored pencils. Next using watercolor crayons, I drew/colored the rock for the mermaid to sit on, added some colors to make the beach, the water, the sky and then drew/colored trees in the background. With each color I used a watercolor brush, afterward, to blend in the colors and give them a softer look. Still using the watercolor brushes, I used them with the watercolor paint and painted over the beach, water and sky...to give them a shimmery look. I also colored over the rock some with colored pencils for more detail. I made my card with teal colored paper, then distressed around it with the distressing tool. Next I cut a piece of navy colored paper slightly smaller than the card, used the distressing tool around it, then taped it onto the center of the card. Then I used the distressing tool around the watercolor paper and taped it in the center of the navy colored paper. The dream charm was already on the chord, so I just glued it across the bottom of the card and tucked the ends beneath the paper. I cut some gauge and placed it beneath the charm going upward on each side. Next I cut a piece of twine and tied it onto the anchor charm, then glued the anchor on the right side of the card, over the gauge. Then I added little glue drops here and there on the gauge to hold it in place.

Thank you for visiting. 
Hope you like my DT card and it gives you some inspiration. 
  We would like to see you join us in the fun!
The challenge will close at 6pm EST on July 31st.

DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY CHALLENGE #138 ATG/TWIST 'SPECIAL BIRTHDAY'

Hello Crafty Friends,
We have a new challenge starting today over at
Digistamps 4 Joy!
http://digistamps4joy-sa.blogspot.com/
 The theme for this challenge is...
Anything Goes with a Twist 'Special Birthday'

Here's my inspiration card for the challenge...
Here's what I used to make it...
Digistamps4Joy - 'Ikebana'
Marco Raffine Colored Pencils
The Paper Studio 4.5"x6.5" 'Country Road'
Unbranded Oval Frame Die 
Memento Dew Drop Ink Pads 'Rich Cocoa' and 'Lady Bug'
Tim Holtz Distress Ink 'Tea Dye'
Inkadinkado 'Personal Impressions' Clear Stamp - Blog Candy
Prima Marketing Distressing Tool
Darice Hemp Twine, Gauge and Flatback Pearls
Real Leaves 
Pink/White Cardstock Paper

Here's what I did...
 I made the card with pink cardstock paper. Then I cut a piece of patterned paper slightly smaller than the card. My hubby brought in a few leaves from outside for me to use, so I added ink to different leaves and stamped them on the bottom left side of the card. Then I used 'tea dye' distress ink around the paper, going in more on the corners. Next I added two strands of twine across the bottom part of the paper, tied a knot on the right side, leaving the tails hanging slightly. Then I taped the paper onto the center of the card. I used the distressing tool around the image, added the same distress ink around it, then taped in onto the card. After stamping the sentiment onto the oval frame die cut, I taped it onto the card, over the twine. Then I added a piece of gauge on each side of the image, tucking it under the sides. After that I glued three flatback pearls onto the image.

And that's my DT card.
Hope you like it and it gives you some inspiration.
Hope you come join us in the fun!
