Music Monday Challenge

Thanks for joining in on the California Love last week....the random entree of ELC's Cowgirl Up Paper Stack is.....Jess B over at That'z Uneek! Congrats Jess, your project was really great. Please email me so I can ship out the paper stack to you!

I'm pretty excited about this one, kids. Who doesn't like to destroy things? haha. When I discovered this song a few days ago, I KNEW it had to be a Music Monday Challenge song. It is beautiful, strong and just plain good. It's a good one to blare, I love songs like that.
The video is super cool too. To me, it expresses destruction. Sometimes you have to break things down in order to stand taller. Love that. So...the challenge this week is to create a project with a destroyed technique. It can be sanded, burned, torn, distressed, roughed up, whatever you want! Here is what I came up with:
I did a lot to this card to destroy it. Glimmer Mist spray, distressed edges, took a lighter to the edges (please learn from me and be more careful with open fire LOL), tore the paper and crinkled the paper. I also made my own messy flower from Angelica's video technique. Unity Stamps here people. And the patterned paper is ALL from Erin Lee Creative Cowgirl Up paper stack!

I hope you can join us this week for our challenge. Angelica is sponsoring this really sweet distressing kit package as the giveaway that will go to a random entry! It's a Heart Attack distresser from We R Memory Keepers and a pack of Tim Holtz Trimmings in Lavish. I'm jealous, I want this!
