Corrosive Challenge #28 Here Kitty Kitty!! Tutorial on Crinkled dp!

This challenge is done by Janet over at the Corrosive challenge blog, and the challenge this week is to use any kitty on your card! I picked Ginger Bell from The Greeting Farm! This is a post-it Notebook made from the Top Note die, and I used a matt for pictures to make the notebook part, and then took a light print dp to make my dp. I added wedding trim, ribbon, and a heart charm to this!

Tutorial is below!!

so first you will want to cut 2 pieces and they do not have to be the whole die, you can do them like below, or a little smaller.

Next you will want to crinkle them up, aned then lay them flat like below.

Then take whatever colors of your choice of distressing inks and rub across the top! this would be your lightest color first!
I used Tim Holtz distressing inks, and right now they are on SALE at Pez-A-Doodle Designs for SUPER CHEAP!!

Next this is wha it will look like with the first color on!
The next color is a little darker and is called Scattered straw!! I only did this one around the edges!
Remember right now is a good time to stock up on these Distress Inks from Tim Holtz at Pez-A-Doodle Designs Marti the owner has them on SALE for an AWESOME PRICE!
Next you will want to plug in your Iron on low, and then take your darkest color and rub it across the dp like you did the first color. Then take your Iron and run it over the paper to smooth it out!

Now you will want to cut these down to fit your notebook frame.
I did cut around the edges of the dp so it would lay on top of the other die! like shown below!
Thank you for looking and hope you will join us in the Corrosive Challenge!!! Heres the Link to the Corrosive Challenge!!
Have fun!!
