I'm Distressing Over The Countryside!

This week I am highlighting the stamp set "Countryside". I knew as soon as I saw this set that I had to have it, if for nothing else but the truck! I love old trucks and this set is perfect for using the new "Distressing Essentials " kit. I couldn't wait to use it so I started out playing around with it, not having a clue where I was headed but after I did a little direct to paper with one of the four little ink pads that comes with it, I decided to go to Stampin Ups demo site and watch the tutorial on how to use this item. Duh! So I started out practicing on this little 3x3 card and I liked how it was starting to look but of course the truck image was too big to use on it. Soooooo Mr. Rooster won the first round of this weeks cards. Now I am not good at coloring all the different colors that you see in roosters so I stuck to two colors and then use the tea stained ink spot to color over the whole thing. I used the Cutter kit distressing tool to rough up the sides of the paper and then mounted it on Chocolate Chip along with crumbled up Cherry Cobbler which I tore the edges on. Oh and I used Always Artichoke for da grass!!! So there you go. I hope you had a good day and if you happen to see your UPS guy when he's delivering your goodies, give him a nice cold drink. My poor guy was sweating so bad in this heat. I didn't know they have no air conditioning in those trucks. Yikes.
