ATS September Guest Designer!

Some of you guessed it, sorta. My super secret news. I'm September's Guest Designer over at All That Scraps! I'm so so excited!

The samples i'm sharing today feature the "Ollie & Griselda" set by design team member Diane Zechman.

I used my Silhouette to cut the scalloped oval and the spiderweb (both Quickutz designs). The card base is PTI summer sunrise, but I used my (now pretty extensive collection of) Distress Inks to sponge color onto the background. I also watercolored the image with Distress Inks and sponged it with Antique Linen after I cut it out. I distressed the sentiment banner with my inks as well. This is my first real try at ink distressing and I don't hate it. (Could've been a craft fail, though, Lauri Ingram.)

Even Griselda knows, it's all about the shoes! Colored with Distress Inks, cut and mounted with Nestabilities. The gingham ruffle with the staples: also a first. I also don't hate it, I just need to get used to it. I used Martha Stewart chunky white glitter to bling her up, the rhinestones are from Michael's Recollections brand--all 3 colors came together, how fortuitous.

Thanks for looking, ladies!
