Distress It

The optional twist this week at Twisted Thursday, The Outlawz, is "Distress It"! Our sponsor this month is Through the Craft Room Door.
I may have overdone it with "distress", but I distressed the papers and even wrinkled and curled up the purple paper. I used Distress Inks to color the flower (Stampin' Up). The butterfly is from Heartfelt creations, I added Distress Inks to some butterfly ribbon I had and a bit of copper glitter around the edges of the card.

Thanks for stopping by. I enjoy reading your comments!


  1. Wow, this is beautiful, you definitely not over done the distress look in my opinion. I'd never have thought to or that u could add distress ink to ribbon. I tried to stamp a message Home Sweet Home on a ribbon I added to a card and it slightly bled not giving a sharp image I'd wanted. X

    1. Thank you, Vanessa. I have not tried to stamp on ribbon, but I recently stamped on muslin fabric. I used a fabric stabilizer first and let it dry so that it would have a stiffer surface. Then, you can wash it out. Let me know it you try it again.
