design team term and the beginning of our
Sizzlin' Summer posts.
I'm Larelyn and I have the privilege of posting first for our new term.
My Blog: Handmade from My Heart
Although I love cut files, I'm a true digi gal at heart so I'm sharing a card I created using the
The papers I selected (Nautical set from Moxxie) have a definite vintage feel so my goal was to color and present the digi in a vintage manner. I accomplished that by using several different distressing techniques.
Here's a close up so that you can see some of the techniques I used:
1. roughing the edges with a scissors blade
2. inking the corners and edges with chalk ink
3. using a crimper
4. sponging distress ink on the image while still in the Spellbinders die cut
5. selecting Copic Markers that carried out the distress color scheme
I have gone into greater depth and with tutorial pictures on my blog.

It's going to be a great summer and we're all excited to share our projects.
Be sure to visit each day to see fantastic creations by my fellow design team members.
