The Sweeties over at Sugar Nellie stamps' challenge blog, The Sugar Bowl, want to see your vintage/distressed work using Sugar Nellie images per Erika's sketch. They're offering a "Steampunk" gift bag to the lucky winner. Find out more about this challenge here.
I've inked up my Sugar Nellie Vintage Baby image and stamped it onto Bazzill Smooth White. This photo shows just the image filled with Copic colors . . .
I've layered some Bazzill Bitter Chocolate and pine. The My Mind's Eye Lost and Found 2010 Portobello Road "Party" Looking Glass Paper has a magnificent vintage look.
I've spent many hours dragging various distresser blades over the edges of my cardstock for layouts, cards and other paper projects. I finally invested in the Zutter Distrezz-it-All and I'm overjoyed! Within seconds I was able to get the look I've always wanted on my projects but couldn't achieve because my fingers cramped or my hands just got too tired of all that scraping. I can't believe the time I've already saved with this tool!
This photo shows the card front with a few Stampin' Up! clear jewel brads and a sentiment from a 2006 Warm Words set.
Here's a side view of this card that shows a glimpse of the inside lining . . .
I can't wait to try the Distrezz-it-All on chipboard albums! Woo-Hoo!
