The Stamp Man Challenge 5

This is my card for this weeks The Stamp Man challenge 5. The theme of the challenge was 'distressed'.

The stamp set I used for the card was Funky Flowers by The Stamp Man.

I begun by stamping the flower image with Old Olive ink pad by Stampin' Up on cream card. I stamped the flowers again, and also three of the individual flowers, with Rich Razzleberry ink pad also from Stampin' Up onto white card. I used the ink pads to colour in the flowers.

I torn around each of the flowers and added Glossy Accents to the centre.

I also torn around the main flowers image, a panel of dark red and cream card. Using a Stampin' Up sponge dauber I added a distressed colour look to edges with a So Saffron Stampin' Up ink pad and Sepia VersaFine ink pad.

On the large cream background panel I stamped the small circles and swirl image.

I layered the card up. I added the corner flowers with PVA glue. The centre flowers were attached with foam pads.

To finish I stamped a greeting. The greeting stamp is from Butterfly Beauties stamp set also by The Stamp Man. This was attached with foam pads.
