Distressed background card

Hello people,

Quickly sharing another card. Here I tried creating a background with heat embossing and distress ink.


Since this was my 1st try please bare with the quality of neatness here. I literally rubbed off the embossing powder from the small butterfly at the top. :(


Supplies used:
Pink Cardstock : Creativita Store
Stamps: Hero arts Antique engravings
Embossing Powder: Ranger's clear embossing powder
Distress ink: Barn door red
Flower: Bitty Blossoms

Challenges:

1. Craft your passion challenges - Anything goes and distressing
2. Sir stampalot challenge - Monochrome
3. Pile it on challenge - Anything goes
4. Simon says stamps challenge - Anything goes
5. Incy wincy designs - Anything goes

I hope you liked my 1st try on making a background with embossing and distressing. :)
Don't forget to leave some sweet comments :D

Happy living,
Priya..
