It's Saturday! Time for a new Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge... and Edna echoes exactly how I feel about this week's theme:
Yes, distressing makes me distressed. It's good to be challenged once in a while, though, right? And so while I could have opted for the easy way out and merely sponged the edges of a card stock panel, I did try to distress a bit more than that.
If you look closely, yes, I did distress the edges of both the Jingle Bells panel and the ticket image. I don't own a fancy distressing tool, of course, so a scissors blade did the work instead. I did also sponge the edges of both those panels, as well, with DISTRESS ink, of course. :D With Jingles Bells as my main stamp, it only made sense to use papers from a pad called "Sleigh Ride".
There is lots of distressing inspiration to be found on the Snarky blog today, both from my sisters in snark and from our latest guest designer, Sandra. And then we would love to see you join us!
P.S. Realized I could add this to Darnell's fun NBUS challenge, since my Jingle Bells music stamp got inky for the first time! I am pretty sure it's the first time I have used this paper pad, as well.
