Distressed!

Good morning, lovelies!  I hope you are all having a fabulous week!  =D  As you may have seen last week, I am so honored and excited to have been accepted onto the Design Team for Digi Doodle Shop!!  Their images are just so darn cute.  Well, it's time for my first official challenge as part of the DT.  Woot, woot!

This week's challenge is Distressing. I know how many people out there love this style, and I know how talented all my lovely followers are, so y'all should have absolutely NO problem with this one!


I used this lovely Antique Stove Set, which can be bought and downloaded here.  The cool thing about this set is that it comes with a stove, bread, salt & pepper shakers, coffee urn and coffee cup that you can merge together as the occasion calls for!  I had a coworker who was recently accepted into culinary school for pastry chefs, so I knew this stamp would be just perfect.  The image was colored with Copics and Spica markers, cut out, then distressed and inked using Distress Ink in Pumice Stone.  The papers are from various Tim Holtz paper packs.  The knowledge charm is also from Tim Holtz.  I tried to get the home made flower look by punching circles in 2 different sizes and then cutting slits to make the petals.  The inside of the card says "A recipe has no soul.  You, as the cook, must bring soul to the recipe. ~Thomas Keller".  Perfect, huh?  =D  My coworker LOVED the card, so that's all that matters.

Alright, now that you've had a chance to look at my card, why don't you head on over to the Digi Doodle Shop Challenges to see what the rest of the DT cooked up!  (Hee!)  Trust me...all of the projects are just GORGEOUS.  You do NOT want to miss seeing them!

After that, I really hope to see y'all join in the challenge!  Don't forget, for the month of October all Halloween and Scenic images are 25% off!  PLUS, there's the fall special...where any purchase of $5 or more gets you these images FREE!


Head on over to the Digi Doodle Shop to snap up these fabulous deals while they last!

Thanks for stopping by, and we'll see you soon!

Hey girlfriend- how are you??? sorry I've been lost in my own little world for the last couple days...just busy & tired. I'm sure you know the feeling!! I had a fun weekend though, spent alot of time working on cards & other projects for my up coming craft show. Mom & I do 2 a year, we don't sell all that much stuff, but it's something fun to do & beside my pocketbook, it's a good cause, for the local school band & the other one is for a catholic school. We are still waiting on my brother's new baby to arrive...arrgggh, I'm ready, I jump everytime the phone rings at home. I soooo love your card, I totaly LOVE the stove image!!! I always told my husband I wanted a vintage stove, my home just doesn't have that style though : ( You flowers are very cute, they actually remind me of stove burners : ) Everything about this card is perfect vintage!! Well better get to doing some work,that is what they pay me for : )
