Feeling Distressed

Happy Monday!

Over the weekend I was looking through some of the awesome videos that Fran has created using Stampendous product and came across an Encrusted Jewel Technique Video she did in 2012.

It's been a while since I played with this distressed Frantage technique I decided to use it for today's card.


I used three stamps on this card.

I colored the image with my Tombow Recycled Pencils.



I finished off my card with Spoonfull Gold Dust Embossing Plus Kit.
The gold cord was some stretchy cord that I recycled from a Christmas Package.

Kristine! This card turned out so wickedly beautiful! I am always in search of ways to craft the holiday projects in non-traditional colors and embellishments!
