I used Isabelle with Puppy Coco by Stampavie and papers from the Basic Grey Sugared collection. Since I was going with paper distressing I decided to create a more vintage style card. I stamped the image in Close to Cocoa ink and instead of using my ever loved copics, I switched things up and used chalks so it would have a softer feel to it ~ and it was actually kind of fun bringing those out! The edges of all the papers are distressed and then inked, and I embossed the green designer paper, sanded it and then inked that as well. The lace is some vintage stuff I picked up awhile back as is the button and pearl pin. I finally got some chain and decent jump rings and attached the charm that way ~ I really do love that look much better (although a large standing magnifier would probably help when putting them together since the chain and the rings are so tiny and if you have longer nails like I do, it makes it even harder to work with these little pieces).
We would love to have you join in our challenge this week and see how you "Tear it Up". Stop on over at the KL Stamping N Scrappin blog for all the challenge details and to see some wonderful eye candy from the rest of the Design Team.
