Magical Monday - Distressing

The special person to receive the random drawing prize for participating in last weeks challenge is: Stamping Sam

Please send me your address at magicintheair@att.net so I can get this out to you. CONGRATS and ENJOY!

Great News! I just uploaded 25 NEW images to my store Paper Cupcakes. You can find them here under "New Arrivals". I have some really cute ones that just arrived for Easter, so make sure you check them out.

"Lucky Bear" is no longer available for free... if by chance you missed this freebie, you can now find this image in my store Paper Cupcakes)

This week Nilla Berglie brings us this weeks challenge. She would like to see you use the above image "Lucky Bear" AND any technique for distressing, roughing up your paper with your scissors, distressing with inks, sanding, scraping, pounding (hehe - do this method if your are mad at someone with your meat tenderizer ;o) ~ any technique you would consider a method to distress! Now remember crafters, there is a fine line between distressing and destruction! tee-hee :O) For anyone not familiar with distressing or would like to become a bit more familiar with it, Nilla has opened a new blog just for techniques! How nice is that? So, make sure you check out her new blog for some distressing techniques just for this challenge. You can find her new technique blog for this challenge here.

The prize for this week’s random drawing for whoever participates in this weeks challenge and links their work back here is this Paper Cupcake's image "Just Because":

All of your design team's cards are wonderful!! Makes mine feel rather drab but I'm going to stand by him -- I'll just have to call him Lucky Bear CAS or how about Lucky Bear, Pure and Simple!!

Thanks so much for these adorable images! I kind of missed an important part of the challenge..distressing it! Whoops - I still wanted to share and say thank you! Your images are just fun!!

grandmalee said...

What great images! Unfortunately, I have no luck downloading anything with 4shared. They blame it on my browser & vice versa, so needless to say, I can't participate or purchase.:o(

Dana said...

Wonderful image! I love how the card turned out:) Thanks for stretching my skills and as always, thanks for sharing!!

Tiffany said...

I can't believe I missed it! First one ever! Oh well, can't wait to see what you have tomorrow!

Cheryl said...
