You know how I said I wouldn't be traveling this week? Well, scratch that. I ended up taking another last minute 3.5 hour (each way) road trip to north central Florida on Thurs/Friday and wasn't sure I was going to make the deadline for today's Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge. But woohoo! I'm here and breathing a bit easier. So what's the new prompt for this fortnight?
D is for Distress
Please forgive my quick post as my card is quite literally Hot Off the Presses. I know this is not unusual for some of my Sistahs however those who know me well know that I'm a planner and usually have my assignments completed weeks/months ahead of time.
The first thing I did was paint a panel of kraft colored woodgrain cardstock with Distress Paint in the color Picket Fence, ie, white. I added several layers of paint, allowing it to dry in between coats. While it was drying I stamped, colored (Copic) and fussy cut out the donkey image. I also die cut the fence and grass, adding in a bit of distress ink and water droplets for some texture.
When my panel was dry I grabbed a piece of sandpaper and DISTRESSED the heck out of my perfectly painted panel. I am loving the look and am rather pleased with my last minute idea. (pat, pat.) I stamped the sentiment on the lower portion of the grassy knoll, adhered some googly eyes to my @*#! and then assembled the card. I stamped a second sentiment on the inside of the card.
