It's Cuttlebug Be Inspired Day!!!!! Are you excited? I sure am!!!! The challenge today is to make a distressed card. Come join in the fun at the Cuttlebug Challenges blog. Just make a distressed card with your 'Bug and link it to the post using good ol' Mr. Linky. The folks from Basic Grey will be supplying a prize pack, so go make your card!!! I started out running the red DP thru my Big Shot with the "D'vine Swirl" Cuttlebug Embossing folder. Then I crumpled it up, flatted it out and rubbed Walnut Stain distress ink over it with a stampin' sponge. For the brick wall I inked up the "Bricks Background" stamp with the Walnut Stain distress ink then stamped onto it with uninked leaves from the "Collage Images" sheet to remove ink. I repeated this in several locations. Then I stamped the DP. Then I crumpled it up and flattened it out. I then rubbed some Tea Stain distress ink over it.
The T-shirt is stamped with the Walnut Stain ink, cut out, and the edges rubbed with Antique Linen distress ink. I used my Prismacolor markers to add the shadowing. I added some hardware from We R Memory Keepers, and velvet ribbon from Flourishes.
