OCC....Distress Sketch Challenge




Good Morning Peeps!! It is Saturday and that means it is time for another new challenge at Our Creative Corner.

This week our challenge hostess is Sarah Gough and her challenge for us is: Distress to De-Stress Sketch! - Stamping is a great way to relax and distressing your card is a fun way to work out a little frustration. This week crumple flowers, distress edges or sponge your stress away while you work with this sketch!



I have to say I struggled just a bit with this challenge, I don't really distress my cards, it is just not me, I like clean lines and this was hard, but heck that is why it is a challenge right?

I started my card with a base of baja breeze and followed that up with some chocolate chip card stock and then some DS paper from the Nursery Suite DSP. I distressed the DSP edges with my scissors, heck I couldn't even find my distressing tool, tho I do have one it doesn't get much action and I am not sure where it is...LOL!!

The stamp set I used is Stampin Up's Friends Fur-ever. Such a fun little set to put together whatever way you like, I made my little pup pulling a cart of bones that is spilling out a bit. Dog-gone-it!!! I used watercolor paper and my aqua painter to color this in.

I added ribbon to my card for the side element, I did distress the ends of the bow a bit, kinda looks like the little pup has been chewing on it a bit!!

I hope you’ll play along this week and have fun with this challenge! Be sure to check out the rest of the OCC design team creations! To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then leave a comment linking to your project over at Our Creative Corner so we can check it out. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC.

Well, that is all from me for now, Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!

Way too cute! I had a Scottie for 15 years and one bone would never have been enough for her either - she would want a wagon load!
