CASology #186 and Muse #154

Today is for the birds.  I mean bird cards. ;)  For the Distress challenge at CASology I made this quadruple distressed card.
Distress 1: Using some old Kraft-core paper I embossed the woodgrain and sanded it down.  Distress 2:  I stamped the sentiment from MFT on kraft paper and used the distress tool to rough up the edges.  Distress 3:  That poor bird is distressed that he forgot someone's birthday.  Distress 4: He's colored with Distress Inks.  Wow, seven distresses in one paragraph.  Well, eight now that I said it again. ;)

Up next are my darling little chickadees for the Muse challenge.  The inspiration photo had flowers.

I wanted to use my film strip die from PPP and the only thing that really fit it were the birds.


I'm so glad you stopped by.  Have a wonderful week.

  1. Wow, a quadruple distress card...it must be a record :) I love how the brightly coloured bird pops against the woodgrain base. Those chicks are fantastic - what a clever take on the Muse card!

  4. Your 'distressed' bird, sporting his distress ink colours, and set atop his distress woood grain background is anything 'but' distressing! He's a smile-maker in every way! And your chickadees...yahooooo! Brilliant, ingenious and just plain ol' amazing! Dare I quote (since you did mention your post was 'for the birds') our sweet Geri, in saying: "Winner, winner chicken dinner'? Yes, I dare *grin*
    Hugs~c

  5. Two fantastic cards, Bobby. Love how many interpretations of Distress you were able to fit into your first card. And, especially all that and you still kept it CAS. Your 2nd card is a real hoot. Love that super tall bird who takes up two squares with his long legs. Honestly, reminds me of both my daughters, who are tall, thin and leggy. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.
