Day 3 of collaborating with Laurel

Hi Friends

So Laurel and I are having so much doing this collaboration week.  For today’s post, we’re featuring one of Laurel’s favorite techniques… distressing. I love distressing too, I just have a lot to learn on all the options with the technique. 

You do remember that I’m giving a way a Lawn Fawn set to someone who comments this week?  I’d sure love to give you the Lawn Fawn set of your choice.

Onto today’s card:

DSC_02860

I used Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Snow for this card.  I made my own snow globe by embossing snowflakes in white then distressing over them with Ranger Broken China distress ink and punching it out with a large circle punch. Then I made the stand part of the snow globe by embossing a piece of kraft card stock with wood grain.  Then I distressed it with Antique Linen, Tea dye, and a little Walnut stain. I attached the snow to the circle then the wood grain stand. Next I added the critters and the twine.  Lastly I added a couple gems for sparkle.

If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Laurel’s blog to see her creation.

Hugs and blessings

Nette
