In Distress

March 12, 2013

Distress isn’t always shabby and doesn’t always have to be grungy!  Designer Cathy Andronicou has a tutorial to share today for using Distress markers to color the sweet teddy bear image used on this sweet card (and a few more to make a set!).  Aren’t they darling?


Supplies: Penny Black Stamps Tutu Sweet 30-154 and Bear of All Trades 30-108, Spellbinders Standard Circles Large and Small, Spellbinders Lacey Circles and Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A. Tim Holtz Distress Markers.
