Distressed Watercolor Trio
Rachel's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #57 was the color inspiration for my card today. I love these colors...coral, celery & white...gorgeous:)
I'm always in awe of papercrafters who get the distressed look 'just right.' Here's my attempt at distressing...a little around the dsp panel and at the top of the bottom border. The Watercolor Trio stamp set in the new Summer Mini Catalog lends itself to a vintage/aged project, and it's one of the easiest sets I've ever stamped with...so forgiving. Oh, did you notice that I added a doodled body and antennae with marker? I picked up this lace at a craft store last night and think it totally works with the distressed edges...and you gotta love those trinket pins pushed through the celery ribbon!
