Remember that green giraffe card I posted a couple of weeks ago? It won the AIFactory Challenge! Because of that, I was asked to be a guest designer for this week's challenge. Be sure that you head over to http://aifactorychallenges.blogspot.com/ and check out all of the details. Then, play along! I can vouch for the fact that it is fun:) This week's challenge ( # 40) is to use distressing on your project. It is NOT a requirement to use AIFactory images, but if you wish to, go to the freebie section at http://www.aivault.com/store/category/freebies.html and pick up some freebies! The deadline for entry is 10:30 p.m. EST next Wednesday. If you upload your creation to an online gallery, please use AIF040 as the keyword. Now--for my card:
I used one of the new Father's Day images, colored it with copics, paper pieced the ties with scraps of DP I had and used the houndstooth cuttlebug folder (found this for $2.00 at Big Lots!). I distressed the embossed folder with sandpaper and rubbed SU Bashful Blue ink on it. I used Papertrey cardstock and buttons, rectangle nestabilities, and added a Papertrey Round and Round sentiment to one of the ties. I also sanded around the scalloped image and added Bashful Blue ink there also. I like the way this turned out--it makes a great masculine card!
AIFactory--thanks for giving me this opportunity to be a guest designer.
