How Distressing!

Hello and welcome to the new Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers biweekly challenge. #17 is brought to you by the letter "D." "D" is for Distressing, my dears. Edna surely appears to be in distress. Show us your distress techniques!


I stole was inspired by a recent tutorial by France Papillon.  You can visit her and see what I stole was  inspired by HERE. I think her work is amazing.

Quick and Dirty How To:

My card began with a layer of gesso on 8.5 x 11" white card stock. A few strips of sheet music were added and also gessoed over. Using gel medium, I stenciled on some stars, which then were coated with glitter. The stars were given a second coat of gel medium, which did not stop them from picking up the color of the mists. The spray mists were followed with another stencil (tiny dots) which I used with tinted blue texture paste. The card edges were then distressed and inked. The sentiment (Dylusions) and the embellishments were then added.

Oh Sistah Lee I Love Every.Single.Thing about this card... the saying (which I have -grin) - the image you picked - and the layers and layers of mixed media you used to showcase both... I Am Not Worthy.. Grin TFS!

Not only do I adore this entire creation, but I definitely need that sentiment! It's practically my motto. :)

Ohhhhh! That background is simply the bomb. I need that teeny dots stencil! And the image & sentiment are just perfectly matched.
