This is my second week as a guest DT member at Our Daily Bread Designs - the challenge this week was distressed or torn.
This challenge made me stretch myself as torn and distressed are not my typical look or style. While shopping recently I came across this sweet cross and purchased it for a whole penny, yes - you read that correctly, a whole penny.......it was too good of a deal to pass up! I sponged some distress ink over it and then dabbed it with some brown Color Box ink. With my Spellbinder Fluer De Lis Die I cut a frame. Then I stamped one of my favorite sentiments from the set "Pray" from the "Full of Grace" collection, onto the same design paper I used for the base. I roughed up the edges of the base as well as the piece holding the sentiment and rubbed some ink around those edges. A rhinestone in the center of my cross and the corners of my die completed the look. On the back of the envelope, for this card, I stamped the Grunge Cross from the "Never Give Up" set. Thanks for stopping by. You can visit Our Daily Bread Design to see the rest of the DT's creations.
