This week has flown by so fast! I can’t believe that it’s time for another JBWW (Just Because We Wanna) Challenge. This week it’s Jeanne’s turn to pick the challenge, and she picked distressing. You can just imagine how happy I was with that one! Yep, I sure was! As with every JBWW Challenge, if you participate (which we hope you do), and post a card to your blog, please come back and link your card to either my blog or Jeanne’s, Inky Paws. If you upload to your Gallery on SCS, please use the keyword JBWW. If you’ve just stumbled across this challenge for the first time, please feel free to participate – the more the merrier!!! We love it when ya’ll play along with us.

I’ve had a number of requests about distressing, and how I get those curled edges, etc. Pamm (HRSECZY on SCS) emailed me last week about this very thing. So while I was making today’s JBWW card, it occurred to me that is was an excellent opportunity to talk distressing. I’ve made a separate Distressing Tutorial, and it is the post immediately following this one.

First, let’s talk about today’s JBWW card. I chose to work with a daisy image from the Bold Floral Collection from Rubbernecker Stamps today. I stamped in the image on watercolor paper then water colored using Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Inks. Once the image was dry, I trimmed it out from the paper and distressed the edges of the frame only. To add more depth to the image, I decided to sponge Vintage Photo Distress Ink along all the edges, dragging it across the front of the image. By dragging the ink across the panel, it highlighted the water coloring of the daisies. The two background panels started out as white cardstock that I sponged a combination of Worn Lipstick and Fired Brick Distress Inks on. For the background immediately behind the daisies, I used Tim Holtz Crackle Paint, tore the edges of the paper off and again sponged the edges. The bottom background panel has some added Fired Brick Paint and the edges were distressed with scissors and sponged. (More detail on all the distressing follows this post in the Distressing Tutorial).
