Distressed Daffodils

Hi everyone! As you are reading this I am off to a crop in Washington State with a few of my TSG peeps but I wanted to leave something for you to look at so here it is :) I know that a lot of you are buried deep in the "Snowmagedon" that has hit the eastern part of the States so I thought that I could brighten your day with a little daffodil sunshine :)

I pulled out The Greatest Joy JustRite set from Stamper's Dream and used the daffodils on my distressed card. Not too long ago, I picked up some of this sweet crate paper and was dying to use it and the daffodil fit right in with the bright yellow paper. They were water coloured with tombow markers and a water brush and then shaded with a chalk pencil.

To created the distressed designer papers, I sponged them with some Ranger Distress Vintage Photo ink, ran them through my cuttlebug with various folders and then used a distressing tool to rough up the edges before sewing them to the espresso card stock. If you look closely then you will notice that I did a very poor take of a blanket stitch down one side of the panels too ;) To finish off the card, I dusted off on of my many tins of SU Hodgepodge Hardware in copper to add the photo anchors and ribbon slider to the orange ribbon.

Thanks for coming by and I will see you tomorrow with my Bellarific Friday post :D
