Daisies in distress!

It’s Anything Goes plus Distressing at Craft Your Passion this week.We also have some fabby multi sponsors too – Delicious Doodles,The Paper Shelter and Stitchy Bear Stamps.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

For my card I’ve used the utterly beautiful Sniffing Daisies from Delicious Doodles.She’s been coloured with FlexMarkers and Distress Ink blended around the edges.I’ve been looking for ways to use up my stash,scraps in particular,and I borrowed the idea of the patchwork background from a card I saw in this months Craft Stamper magazine.The papers are K & Co and  some faux stitching has been drawn in using the fine end of a Whispers Brush Marker.I embossed and sanded a scrap of Core’dinations Whitewash card too.All edges have been roughed up with the Tim Holtz  Paper Distresser  Tool.I cut some hessian flowers with a die and ‘iced’ around the edges to stop them fraying.They’ve been topped with some die cut buttons from another scrap of Core’dinations card.I tied them with some paper thread ( I love this stuff!).I added some vintage seam binding that I swiped with the piece of Cut n Dry foam that I’d used on the image. So as you can see I’ve used quite a lot of distressing techniques!

 As this is my first post of 2012 I’d like to wish everyone who stops by a very Happy New Year.
