BFF - lo

It's Friday again!!!! and it means a new challenge at Frosted Designs. This week we ask you to distress your creations. I just love distressing! It's my no.1 favorite technique.
On this lo I used a lot of distressing - the edges of the pp, of the photo and of the dp underneath the photo (BG and K&Co.), the doilies, the butterflies.

I used the sketch from creative scrappers, this week's challenge at Sketches In Thyme (yep! I combined my two DT's jobs... LOL). Here's the sketch:

The flower was made of fabric and covered with green stickles, and was layered on a felt flower. The letters of the title are also felt.

The photo is of my BF and me. We're friends for over 20 years, ever since we met at the university. Our friendship is one of the best things in my life, which I'm very thankful for.

Now it's your turn to show us your distressing at Frosted Designs. Go and look at what the uber talented ladies over there made for this challenge. Awesome projects!
And while you're there, why not play with us with Diana's sketch? It's here here here! We'd love to see your take on it (not to mention the fabie prize you can win! but you have to play for the chance to win it...).

I'm entering this lo to the following challenges:
fuzzy - mami doodles
texture - critter sketch
open plus a butterfly - flutterby wednesday
old and new goodies - Julie's challenge (the basis dp and the doillies are oldie - I have them more than a year, since I started card making; the BG dp is a new goodie I just bought recently).
wings (plus BG's products) - basic grey (one of the dp is from Oliver line)
show us your style - fresh brewed (mine is surely distressing)
distressing - a spoon full of sugar
thankful/thank you - the sisterhood of crafters; the crazy challenge; for fun; scrap that poetry (the poem "A prayer for The Great Family" by Gary Snyder; ann's creative nook

Thank you for stopping by!

יום שישי חזר... וזה אומר אתגר חדש ב-Frosted Designs, והפעם משהו שאהוב עלי מאד - דיסטרסינג. זו הטכניקה האהובה עלי ביותר, ובדף הזה השתמשתי גם ביישון קצוות כמעט של הכל (התמונה, המאטינג שלה, הניירות המדוגמים מתחתיה) וגם בהרבה דיו. את הפרח הירקרק הזה הכנתי מבד עם דבק פלסטי וסטיקלס, בהשראת פית מרציפן.

תודה על תשומת הלב :).

טוב, עד עכשיו בטח כבר הבנת שאני אוהבת את העבודות שלך, נכון??

שלא תחשבי שלא רואים את הדיו בשוליים- רואים וזה מבליט כל שכבה ושכבה.

את חייבת לספר לי מאיפה את קונה את הדויילי האלה??? מדהים

Lovely vintage style layout. Doilies are very trendy in the scrapping world at the mo and the composition of this page is great!
