Let's Distress!!

Happy Thursday Everyone!

I'm so sorry that my post is late!! Being out of town over the weekend and end of last week, has really disrupted my schedule plus getting Brittany ready for school to start next week (yes, next week). I thought today was Wednesday!! Anyway, today is Softpencil Designs day and I have this adorable digi for you to see. It's called "Welcome to my Home". Our design element at Softpencil this week is to distress, tear, ink, sand or crumble some part of our card. I decided to ink and tear my papers and image. I love to distress but rarely take the time to do it anymore. I usually concentrate more on embellishments and my image instead. If you haven't tried distressing, you should. It's a fun and effective technique for making an eye catching design.

I colored my design with my copics and actually drew a few spots on my puppy. I just think he turned out so cute!! I tore and inked the edges of my image. I tore the edges of my Prima DP and my cardstock. I attached the ladybug ribbon across the corners of the card. I popped my image up on pop dots. This is a sweet image perfect for lots of different projects and because he's a digi, you can make it any size you want.

Elizabeth has some new images in her store and if you would like to get this image for your collection, please visit her at Softpencil Designs. Be sure to visit my Softpencil DT sisters to see what they have created with this adorable stamp. Their links are in my sidebar. Thanks for visiting my blog. I appreciate you coming by and leaving your sweet comments. I look forward to them everyday and I love visiting your blogs as well. Have a wonderful day!
