In distress

your projects that is!! This week at AiFactory, we want you to put your card, layout or project in it, tear it, wrinkle it, distress it with a tool, scrunch it, ink it, whatever you can come up with, we want to see it this week!  As always you have a week to upload your project to the AiFactory challenge blog here.  They have to be there by 10:30pm EST on Wednesday June 23 to be entered to win the prize of the digital stamp set and a chance to be a guest designer!   If you upload from an online gallery, please label your project with AIF#40 so we can find it easily.

For this week’s card I did a lot of distressing and used my Tim Holtz Distress Inks (practically had to blow the dust off of these!)  The image is from a new image this week called Best Dad which is of course perfect for Father’s Day which is coming up on Sunday (I have 4 cards to make!).  We all know how hard it is to find masculine images so you’ll want to snag this from the Vault as soon as you can find it here

Remember, you don’t have to use AiF images for your projects but we would love it if you do.  We have a great freebie section to choose from.

I colored the image with my watercolor pencils (again with the dust blowing) and then went over it with some Vintage Photo Distress ink.  I got out my handy dandy distressing tool and did all the edges of my card and for the PP I crinkled it first then ran the ink over it and then did the edges.  I added some string and a clip that I had in my stash.  Instead of brads, I used some little washers I picked up at Home Depot and then adhered them with Glossy Accents..I hope you like it!

Make sure you check out the rest of the DT and what they created for you this week!
