Anything Is Possible!

The Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge this week was inspired by the bible verse from Isaiah 64:6..."But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousness as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away." The challenge is to use distressing or sponge the edges of your card/project to give it a vintage or distressed look.

I must admit that this is a technique I don't use very often but that's the great thing about a challenge...it makes us step outside our comfort zone and try something new. I sponged Tim Holtz Distress Inks on the edges of all my paper in my card to give it a vintage feel. What do you think?

Supplies:- Stamps - Delightful Little Things and Because Of You by Ippity
