May 2017 Monthly Challenge

Thanks to all who did the April Monthly Challenge! All the cards were great! We Do have a winner to announce. It is gingerbaby!!!!!! Congrats! Wendy will be sending you the prize this month.

Now onto the new challenge for May. The theme is Distress. Please make a tag or card and distress it. You can do that by tearing edges of paper, sponging the edges of your paper, splatting ink over your work, etc. Anything to make your project look old -- shabby chic! Please use at least one stamped image on your card, not just a saying. If you use Judikins or a Posh stamp you will be in the drawing twice. I will be giving an RAK to a lucky random winner!

I hope you will have fun with this. You have until the last day of May to play. I can't wait to see what you make.

April

One form of distressing tips

Hi Gang...in an attempt to encourage a few other submissions...here's a couple fun things that MaryJo McGraw taught me when she designed these stamps. They're called Esponge Noir which means black sponge and the images look like granite or stone carvings. When stamped in different colors of ink and wet with water, the ink smears and blends to create a "distressed" watercolored effect. You'll see how she tore the paper and yes...metallic markers and inks are always a terrific addition to bling the torn edges. The best part is this is "sloppy" stamping and we can all do this!!
  1. Stamp image with orange ink. Wet with water. Let dry.
  2. Repeat by stamping image with magenta ink and try to overlap as close to original stamped image as possible. It still looks ok if offset as much as 1/8 inch.
  3. Continue with 3rd color and best if a dark color. I used Dark Brown here. I added a little blue by tipping the wet paint brush onto a light blue ink pad.
  4. Finally stamp frame design and cut out frame. Layer the frame over face image. Stamp other images onto frame using like colors. Sometimes a chalky ink or pigment ink works great to add depth.
  5. This is the actual card that MaryJo stamped. She's really an expert at coloring.

Judi, love the tutorial. It certainly explains a lot. I should have referenced your wonderful book. You my friend are a wonderful teacher yourself. I think you know how I feel from the TV Weekly series.....the flower child

Sheila-Rose, very nice card. I love how the colors are such a great match. It reminds me of something that was found in an old trunk and the founder was so delighted with what they have found. Nicely done.....the flower child

Great submission Yankee. Using the paste with the stencils and roughing everything up is fab.

Blossom...sorry I don't think the Esponge Noir technique was in my book but most certainly MaryJo has something posted somewhere. She wrote close to 10 books and has always been pretty active on her blog and FB.

BUT the bits of information in my book that might be helpful is the areas about color and composition. I'm convinced this is what pushed me into liking some of this distressed stuff. Getting the balance of layout, texture and colors was important

Okee dokee...anyone else ready to try?
