Springtime Distress Collage, TLC364 Challenge

This week's Technique Challenge on Split Coast is "Wrinkle Free Distress".

Above is a close up of the background.

Made this card for a friend and this week's technique challenge.  The background is created using the "Wrinkle Free Distress" technique.  Then several Stampin' Up stamp sets were used with Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear heat embossed.   Last the bird and branch, the labels for the sentiment, and the corners were all punched with Stampin' Up punches. 

Stampin Up Stamp sets used:
Fresh Cuts
Of the Earth
Silhouette Sentiments

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have a great week.
