The MIM challenge is to distress edges. Usually, I'm not really into distressing edges with scissors, sand paper, etc, but I took the challenge to step out of my comfort zone.
The Tuesday Trigger over at the Moxie Fab World is this gorgeous photo:
I love the color combination in the photo...so soft and pretty.
Here's what I came up with...
I used some chipboard shapes I had in my stash and distressed the edges of the bird with some scissors. I love how it kind of gives the bird some "feathers". For the background pattern I inked the stamp with three different chalk ink colors to give it a soft colored effect. All the edges were distressed with PTI Chamomile ink. I stamped the sentiment on a transparency sheet so it wouldn't cover up any of the chipboard elements and used the white ink to distress the edges so it would stand out a bit.
Thanks for looking!
