Anything Goes ... with Distressing at OSAAT

Good day to you all.  Well here I am for the third day in a row - just like buses; none for ages then three altogether.  As you can see this is my DT card for Anything Goes with Distressing for OSAAT.   And boy do I get distressed making this type of card!   But I did  feel pretty pleased with myself when I had finished.   Whenever I distress paper/card I can "feel" my mum on my shoulder asking what do I think I'm doing damaging this lovely cardstock!

Please scroll to previous post if you are looking for my CCC card.

My Card

I was even more distressed when I realised that it barely showed up in the picture so I took a close up, which also showed the sentiment text.
5" x & 2 base card - not sure where the cardsock is from
digi sentiment - Coosty Creations
heart die - Nellie Snellen
border die - Tessatina Border from Memory Box
roses - Wild Orchid Crafts
lace from stash
leaves - Woodware punch
pearly spray - The Ribbon Girl
pearls from stash

I machine stitched around some of the card stock, distressed with a distressing tool and inked the edges with Versacolour Petal Pink ink.

Please pop over to the blog and see the wonderful creations from the rest of the DT which might persuade you to join in our challenge. The  winner will get a $10 coupon to spend in Stitchy Bears Digital Outlet

Well, I hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday.


  1. Hi Christine,
    oh this is so gorgeous and very stunning.
    I love you fab design of this, and the wonderful pearl card stock you have used.
    Sorry I thought it was pearlised till I looked at your close up, but the light shining on it made it look so.
    I know what you mean about either tearing or distressing card stock as I too find it hard, and feel so naughty when I do it.
    Love and biggest hugs from my house to yours.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
