Midweek Magnolia - Distressed

Hello, Friends and Happy Hump Day! The Midweek Magnolias Design Team has a new challenge for you and this week our theme is “Distressed.” So easy, right? Hop over to Midweek Magnolias for some awesome inspiration from the DT and leave some love on their blogs. You’ll have a chance to win a fabulous mystery prize from Magnolia Sweden.
My card this week features “Scooter Tilda” which I’ve been dying to color; she's available at Magnolia-licious. I dressed her up in Autumn colored Copics and matching DPs from Deja Views.
My cardstock is from Bazzill and I distressed the DPs with my Tim Holtz distressing tool then added a brush of Vintage Photo Distress ink around the edges. I machine stitched all of my panels and cut a strip of muslin fabric stamped with my Magnolia leaf and acorn using SU’s Crumb Cake ink, frayed the edges and wrapped it with jute twine. Tilda’s scooter headlight got a coat of Glossy Accents for dimension and shine. My flowers and leaves are from Prima with buttons from my stash tied with jute and embossing thread. Finally, I finished it off with a Magnolia fence die cut distressed with Vintage Photo.
The inside of my card has distressed paper and stitched as well. I added a simple sentiment from my PC, stitched and matted on cardstock. 

Stamps – Magnolia
Cardstock – Bazzill
DPs – Deja Views
Flowers & Leaves – Prima
Dies/Punches – Magnolia; EK Success
Buttons – HOTP
Muslin/Jute Twine – JoAnn’s; WestTrim Crafts

I hope my card inspires you to join us this week at Midweek Magnolias. Happy crafting…
