Those of you who have scrapbooked with me in the past will vouch that I once distressed every piece of paper I used. My fingers were always brown....'Van Dyke' brown to be specific. Sometime during the last several years I put away the brown ink and picked up Copic markers. I have been coloring stamped images for two years now and have distressed very little. It seems that reds, blues, pinks, and yellows had taken over my paper. Until yesterday....
I created a card yesterday that reminded me of my former scrapbook pages. It is made with older vintage-looking papers and is distressed quite a bit. I used Treehouse Stamp 'Autumn Leaves' digital image and sentiment printed on Papertrey Ink white cardstock. I colored the leaf with Copic markers and then distressed it and the pattern papers I had chosen. I did a bit of machine stitching and then added the 3-D embellishments. I like the way it turned out.
