Wings and Banners


This week's Haunted Design House Challenge (HDH135) is called Distressed Mistress or Pass the Distressing. The goal is to distress your creation. I chose the LilyPink Designs Bingo Dress Form and Wings from Can You Digi It? and I distressed my image by cutting it on the edges, using a stylus to cup so the wings curled, and I also sponged on some SU! Kraft Ink for color distressing. I added an extra layer of wings for more wing volume. All my cardstock is SU! and all the dp is from Hobby Lobby's Everyday Kraft Stack. I ink distressed all the papers. I love the little banner buttons and the button I used on the free space of the bingo dress form - they are all from My Minds Eye (available at Can You Digi It?).

I used the ultra fun sketch from Fresh Brewed Designs Blog Challenge.

I have felt pretty distressed lately, but after crafting this morning, I am feeling a bit more relaxed. Hope you are all having a great day! Hugz!!!

Other supplies used:
SU! Bakers Twine
Zva black and clear Crystals (from the Crystal Wheel)

  16. For our full thoughts on Windows Phone 7 -- a feature that could almost singlehandedly make these devices impossible to ignore for serious business users regardless of sexcam their seemingly consumer-centric
    slant.

  17. Follow the instructions here on how to get and use it, then
    there's no reason to think that it exists. This is because the rate of success will be balanced by the higher pregnancy loss rates and prematurity associated with fleshlight twins. All set up Print on your computer, you can still come across the remains of hotels and motels.
