Have you ever bought something that you thought at the time was so pretty and then when you went to use it you didn't like it!!! Well, that happened to me with this Tim Coffey Special Punch Pad filled with gorgeous flowers. The trouble is, if you use the flowers as is and layer them, they have no "life". This is what happened to me while I was playing with these roses. I just didn't like them. So I took them apart, misted them with water, scrunched them up, let them dry, sponged distress tea dye ink all over them, put them together, and outlined them with Star Dust stickles. Now I love them. The next thing I tried was taking my dp, scrunching it up in a ball, then unfolding, and running a distress ink pad all over it. I like the results. I was going for a really vintage looking card. So I had a blast putting this together. I played along in the Technique Lovers Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers. You are suppose to cut away part of your card along the edge. I cut away my card along the leaves. It is so pretty. I used the Spellbinders nesties, Martha Stewart deep edge punch, rhinestones, ribbon, star dust stickles, spellbinders die for the key, and rangers tea die distress ink. Thank you so much for stopping by. Hope to see you again soon this week. I have been in the mood to create these past few weeks!!
