Distressed Love

I had someone email tonight that thought because I had a chicken recipe on my other blog here-that I must have messed up or something. Rule of thumb-scroll all the way to the end of each post! It was a joke-with a photo of a rubber chicken to boot. Go read it-hopefully you will see it as a funny. My daughter-the Detroit cop (would that mess up your head or what)-sent it to me. Would anyone really want a chicken butt to explode in their oven? Good grief.

So the card below got a tiny make over. As you can see, the original is so flat that it looks like a place mat. So I took it apart and distressed a few pieces. I started with a cream card and punched the corners. I also ran the edges over a teal ink pad. Using a striped piece of card stock, I popped it into the corner slots.

I stamped a love note on pink texture and layered it to teal texture. This was then taped to the lower card. I added a sparkly brad to a flower and pop dotted it to the upper corner. The sticker was added to teal and layered to pink----snore.

Basically, I took both layered peices off and roughed up the edges of both and ran a little color along them, too. Both layers were than pop dotted back on.

Then for a little extra shimmer on the sticker, I added some Stickles to the hearts. When the sun catches it, it looks so much better. Happy spring-peeps. Can't wait for the snow tonight.
