Before you ask, yes, I made this. It is not my normal style, but isn't that the point of challenges? We won't talk about how distressing I find distressing or how I cringe when I put things on crooked...let's just focus on the card. What do you think? I had to channel my friend Ann a bit on this one. She is amazing at the distressed look and is the reigning queen of the color spritzer. I need to ask her for some vacuuming tips now that my floor is covered with little balls of paper from all the distressing. :)
So what possessed me to make this and do all the tearing and distressing? Nope. It's not the lack of carbs for a week. It was for this week's color challenge over on Splitcoast! They asked us to use gray, turquoise, and white. I love turquoise with red, but I wasn't sure about this gray thing. I do like how it turned out though. Now it was also for a secret challenge on Splitcoast as well. This week they are having the Dare to Get Dirty challenges for fan club members. So...if you aren't a member of the website. go sign up! If you are but aren't a fan club member, do that! It's fun. Who doesn't like fun?
