There's a new challenge over at Hambo Hoedown! This week's challenge is all about DISTRESSING! If you know me at all, you know I LOVE destressing! Woohoo! I used the Ogre - digi by Hambo Stamps and coloured it with Copics (ogre-YG97, YG95, YG93; shirt-YR18, YR15, Y17; shorts-E99, E35, E34, E21; suspenders-E99, YR18, YR15). Have a look at that ribbon! I just LOVE it! It's Hambo's Sweat Pea Webbed Weave! Isn't that awesome! I distressed the heck out ove all the pieces of the card. I wanted to add some sort of flower embellishment but do ogres really have anything to do with flowers? So I sprayed the die cut flowers (from Tim Holtz Sizzix Tattered Florals Die) with Tattered Angels Pearl Glimmer Mist. While they were wet, I crumpled the flowers up as much as possible and flattened them back out a little. After letting them dry, I swiped my SU Whisper White Craft Ink Pad over the edges of the flowers. I pinned them down with brads. On the larger brad, I coloured the flower with my YG95 Copic Marker. Here's a closeup on those flowers:
