Distress It - AiFactory Design Team Challenge No. 40

Hi everyone,

I decided to give the distress it design team challenge a try. This is the weekly challenge for AiFactory and while not assigned to my team "b" group I got to play with the art too.

I tried my hand at distress inks, alcohol inks, transparencies, core-dinations paper, embossing and sanding. I also tried my hand at a card and have posted it here too. I am a bit on the fence about the results; however, the best part of participating in a challenge is being hands on with techniques you have only seen demonstrated... and of course you have the supplies but need to just open them!

Here is my tag -- it is attached to a bottle of porter made by my friend Tina and her husband.

The porter style brew is labeled Double Dachshund and the challenge art is great for father's day. As we have no human kids and just doxie fur babies I used the paw print texture plate and tried to make the colouring a bit brighter than traditional distressed colours. The ink I used to stamp on the transparency I Ruff You is Staz On.

Here are my double doxies.

This is my card attempt -- I used some more of my new goodies... I am on the fence with this one too... Tim Holtz clear stamps and Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Check out the new site at AiFactory and sign up. The digital clip art is available at the store.

Thanks for stopping by! See you next week for a new challenge.
