Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

JUGS Wild Card and Mixed Media




This week over at Just Us Girls….it’s time for our Wild Card Challenge.

We have a Wild Card Challenge when we happen to have 5 Saturdays in a month.

Marisa is our go to gal this week and she has chosen

“Distressing” as our theme.  Great idea Marisa!!

I just so happen to have recently gotten a distressing tool

from Stampin Up that works great.  Mind you, I have been using the sides of

a pair of scissors for years and it’s worked well…but this is a little safer. LOL

I also think it does a better job.

I am also linking this card to a really fun challenge site called

Mixed Media Color Challenge.  You have to check it out!

Very talented ladies run this site!  Their work is mind blowing!

They are giving away an amazing gift this time!

Here are a few things I did to create this card.

I used a clear block, some moment rose bud ink,

and a spritz or two of water  to create my background

on my watercolor paper.  Love how easy this is!  You just

ink up your block….spritz it with water and stamp!

Then I Heat embossed my dandelion flowers with white embossing powder.

My fence posts or gates were cut out with my Cricut.

I sure hope you can tell what they are….I was worried about this!

They are two fence gates that meet in the middle.

Added some Washi tape and the rest is rather self explanatory!

Hope you have a fantastic long weekend!  I can’t tell you how

happy I am to have an extra day to catch up on some Creative time…..I hope!

I will be back tomorrow with a new challenge from CAS on Sunday!
