Dazzling Divas Design Challenge #38

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

It's time for our weekly challenge over at Add A Little Dazzle.  Here's our beautiful inspiration today:

I've stamped and heat embossed the image in white on some Distress Watercolor Paper.  Next, I took three Distress Ink pads and dabbed them on my craft sheet.  I "painted" the piece with water before dropping the colors onto the paper.

Then I added a "crinkled" frame from a Baby Blue craft metal sheet.  I punched the stars in the same color too!  And, for even more texture...some cheesecloth layered in behind.  A simple stamped sentiment and done!

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Nina Solar White and Distress Watercolor Paper
Ink:  Peeled Paint, Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans Distress Inks; Versamark and Versafine Onyx Black
Stamps:  Altenew Lace Up and Label Love
All the other stuff:  Add A Little Dazzle Baby Blue craft metal sheet, EK Success punch, cheesecloth

And just a reminder about the Altenew/Add a Little Dazzle Blog Hop.  Prizes are good right???
