JUGS140: Thanks for your Support

This is the card I made for the Just Us Girls challenge. The challenge this week was a technique challenge, and the challenge was acrylic distress. I had tried this technique a while back ago and learned that too much paint makes it really difficult to sand off the paint to create the affect.

I made the flowers using circle punches. Each flower is made up of three circle punches. I used my bone folder to distress the cardstock to the point that the layers of the paper begin to separate. When the paper is really distressed you can then separate the layers into two pieces. I stacked all the layers (6) and secured them with a brad. Next, I took each layer and scrunched it towards the center. Once I did this with all the layers I gently unfolded it to make the flowers.
