Paint and/or Distressing with Heart Song Designs

This week's challenge over at Heart Song Designs is to incorporate paint and/or distressing into your papercraft projects. Leah has a wonderful free image available for you to use if you would like, although any and all images are welcome in the challenge. One winner will receive their choice of digi from the Heart Song store. Please stop by the inspiration blog, as the DT has created some beautiful projects!

I went for a more simple look this time, using the single tulip image. Papers are Cosmo Cricket DeLovely. as almost always, the image was watercolored, so that satisfies one portion of the paint challenge. But I decided to also paint the card base edges with white acrylic paint. I really like the way it dries and shows up better than the white craft ink I ususally use. Now to just not smear it everywhere! ;) Edges of the designer paper were distressed to satisfy the other portion of the challenge criteria. I ruffled a bit of white satin ribbon and then added some pretty roses I found at Michael's on a trip there a while back. a SU! rub-on senti completes the card.

Can't wait to see what YOU make for the challenge! have a most wonderful day!
