Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge #90. Does Stanley the Snail Look Distressed?!!

Well, time for yet another Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge. This week, our Hostess is the Magnificent Melanie!! To be honest, I am getting my post ready early as I'm leaving town for a few days. Consequently I don't know what fun stamp Melanie will be using on her card. I do know that whatever she does with her card, it will be a masterpiece!

For mine, I used Stanley the Snail. Doesn't he look like he's having a great time at the beach? I coloured him with Copics, then distressed around the edge of the image layer. I did the same with the Pixie Pink frame. I used a card base of Pacific Point, onto which I layered some patterned paper and then some more Pixie Pink cardstock, both of which I distressed. I put a strip of matching paper across behind the image, used some linen thread across the middle with a shell tied to it. I coloured the shell with my Copics to match the Pacific Point cardstock. It really does match in real life. I finished with the sentiment 'Hey Hot Stuff' from Kraftin' Kimmie's Beachy Sentiments.

Be sure to visit the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge Blog where you will see all the other distressed cards the other Krafty Girls have made.

Meanwhile, have a wonderful weekend and do your own distressing. If you use a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp and link your card up to the Challenge Blog, you will be in with a chance to win the stamp Melanie is using.
