NEW CHALLENGE - A 'CHARMED' DISTRESS LOOK!

Hello and thanks for stopping by....

A new challenge for Team B starts today at Moving Along With The Times (MAWTT), the lovely Hazel is hosting this and her theme is:
'Add A Charm Or Tag'
We hope that you'll join in with us and let us see what you can design.  Please take a stroll over to the MAWTT Blog and see the stunning creations from the rest of the team.
This is my contribution....
I first embossed a panel of white watercolour card then sprinkled 3 different Pixie Powders over the embossed image, spritzed with water and let it dry overnight

I realise that the pattern on each bauble is not clear on the photograph but is in 'the flesh' 

I wanted to create a 'distressed look' with this card and whilst it doesn't appeal to everyone (and I used to be one of those people) I must say that I now really enjoy making this kind of 'look' LOL

I highlighted the outer part of the baubles with a gold paint pen then splattered gold liquid onto the card, one of the 'splats' landed right in the centre of a bauble, couldn't have done that had I tried to, so I dabbed gold onto the other centres

I adhered this panel onto a thin darker blue panel and then onto my DL base card

I completed the card by adding a 'Christmas stocking charm' to the top left of the card

INGREDIENTS:
  • Watercolour card ~ Crafter's Companion
  • Blue card ~ my stash
  • DL card ~ Woodware
  • Pixie Powders: Midnight Blue, Aqua Lagoon, Peacock Green ~ Creative Expressions
  • Gold Paint Pen ~ Pen-touch
  • Christmas Stocking Charm ~ Hobby House
Until tomorrow....

  1. I know what you mean - I didn't like the distressed look before and now I'm a big fan :) This has great colors and texture, and the charm in the corner is a fun accent x Jessie
