Don't Stress... DISTRESS... but I DID!!!

I sure did at that!!!  Soooo... there I sat... at the piano... relaxing (keyword), practicing, even being goofy about how I was playing.  Basically... having a nice RELAXING evening.  Then my cell phone dings... Oh! a text... wonder who that is.  HOLY MOTHER OF PEARL!!!!!  Yep... I totally forgot about today's Outlawz Challenge to "Don't Stress... Distress"!!!!  Let the STRESS begin!!!

LOL  Fortunately... the stamping world is full of fabulous ladies, a lot who I've become great friends with and yep... sure enough... the one who sent me the text came through with a helping hand.  *deep breath*  But still... in 4th gear I went... trying to get this little sweet card done.  Oh for sure it is a simple and easy card... but I definitely had paper, ribbon and Copics flying as I pushed on to at least get the card done.  My dear friend posted the challenge FOR ME as it was MY turn to put the challenge up.  Thank you sweet, Anary, for jumping in and covering me.

I'm sure you all know how to do a quick and easy layout but I'm going to let you know how mine came together.  First... I ALWAYS keep a supply of stamped images on hand.  Whether they be rubber stamped or digi's, I keep a stash for when I travel and want to take some along to color or for times like this.  My cute image is a Mo's Digital Pencil image, "On the Pot Girl".  Hee Hee  I just HAD to have her!!  :-)

I started with some Pure Luxury Lemon Drop card stock and added some Bubble Gum Pink to layer under my Echo Park, "Be Mine" DP.  I colored my image with my Copics and distressed the edges.  I added a bit of Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Tattered Rose, to the edges of the image before mounting it with Pop Dots.

Not bad, I don't think, for a quick 10 minute card.  Though I suspect I COULD have done better had I NOT been relaxing... DISTRESS is always better.  Hee Hee

Have a great day and join us on the Outlawz Challenge site.  Thanks for stopping by!  *HUGS*
