SMC Challenge ~ Embossing & Distressing

This week at Sew Many Challenges we are challenging everyone to create a project using embossing & distressing. If you need a great image to use check out the store at Sew Many Cards or visit our sponsor...

Our sponsor for this challenge is Stitchy Bear Stamps. Stitchy is offering 3 digital images of the winner's choice (Stitchy Stamps only)!

This is the card that I made for my nephew. We will be celebrating his 9th birthday tomorrow. The image that I used is one of the newest images that you can get at Sew Many Cards called Safe Travels. For the embossing on my card I used a herringbone cuttlebug embossing folder. It looks like tire tracks to me so I thought it would be perfect for this card. To create my distressed look I used a brown ink pad and a makeup sponge and inked around the edges of the green embossed cardstock square, around the edges of the tan background paper, around the edges of the image and on the sentiment. I then added black pearls to two corners.

The sponsor team at Sew Many Challenges, also got to work with an image of our choice from Stitchy Bear Stamps, and I chose to use the image, Sparkles. Thanks for taking the time to look at my cards.
