Catered Crop Distress Challenge

This week's recipe swap at Catered Crop is distressing. I think I may have gone overboard on the keyword. I was tearing up a yogurt carton into our recycling bin and noticed that the corrugated layer was a "mini" type and decided to salvage it for the challenge.


I peeled off as much as I could from the paper layer and still left some of it on. I went over parts of the corrugation with a white ink pad to make the ridges stand out a bit more.


The label was also ink distressed and I added some faux stitching with a white pigment pen. The Hero Arts sentiment was cut apart to fit and everything was put together with some rayon seam binding, flowers, pearls and leaves.

Is it too distressed?






I thought I'd squeeze this into A Blog Named Hero's kraft challenge, too, since I used a Hero Arts sentiment stamp.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
