Dream Away

Today Doodle Pantry is sponsoring Craft Your Passion and the challenge is Torn and Distressed Edges and may I say what a challenge it was for me! I very rarely do distressed cards because I'm not very good at it.
I printed and cut out Doodle Pantry's Dream Catcher and then popped up the whole image. I distressed all the papers but not the sentiments. I dug around in my jewellery bag and found some metal feathers I had left over from making my son's dream catchers years ago. I made three, one for each son and then two more for my niece and nephew, then I did a crossed stitched dream catcher for our living-room, I love them!
Even though I don't do distressed I do like how it turned out. Hop on over the Craft Your Passion and give the challenge a try. If you use a Doodle Pantry image you can also enter Doodle Pantry's challenge #23 and receive a free image just for entering!

  15. Dawn, wow! Love the way you colored your dream catcher and of course the added charms. I too am a big fan of dream catchers, I haven't cross stitched in quite a while...bet yours in cross stitch is gorgeous. Love all of the layers and the gear embossing folder looks great behind your image. May not be your fave technique, but you aced it!
