It's A Distressing Cuttlebug Challenge

Good morning stampers and cuttlebug lovers. Welcome to challenge 16 for the Cuttlebug Challenges Blog. This week's challenge is to distress your card. Tear it, distress edges, sponge it do whatever it takes to distress it. I did a little bit of each.


When I think of distressing for some reason I think masculine, so for this weeks Cuttlebug Challenge I chose to make a masculine card. This came suprisingly easy for me because I usually struggle with masculine cards.

I thought it would give it a more distressed look if I used the cracked glass technique over the main image. Mission accomplished.
Paper: Ruby Red, Kraft. Stamps: Seaside Sketches, All Occasions. Inks: Basic Brown, Olive, Versamark. Extras: Cuttlebug, Argyle & Spots and Dots folders, Copics,UTEE, Buttons, Twine, Corner Punch, Sponge.

The image is from a retired Stampin Up set called Seaside Sketches that I don't think I will ever part with. It is one of my all time faves for sure.

Thats it for this weeks challenge. I hope you get the chance to play along with us this week. You could be chosen for our featured stamper and get a cool blinkie to put on your site. I have been introduced to many new blogs and have admired all the lovely cards you created from lasts week's challenge.
Make sure to pop over to the Cuttlebug Challenges blog and check out the gorgeous samples the design team created. They'll knock your socks off for sure. We have some big things going on over there.
Have a great day and I hope it's warm and dry where you are and if it's not, bundle up and try to stay warm. TTFN
