CREATIVE CREW, Vintage Ship in a Bottle...

Today I have my entry for the Distressing challenge for this May's Creative Crew Challenges.  I chose to use two distressing techniques:  Cracked Glass and Faux Burned Paper.  I do love distressing!  Almost all my projects have at least a little color distressing, but I took it up a notch with this card.  Here is this challenge's information:

CCREW0511CF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM - Catalog Focus -- So Distressing. Use the Distressing Essentials kit, cutter kit, sponges, daubers. Make the new look old.

I did have a couple of people contact me saying that they could not see the Creative Crew Challenges on  Unfortunately, you do have to be signed in as a registered member to see Creative Crew members samples.  Non-Creative Crew member's samples can be viewed just by clicking the links in the Challenge descriptions.  To see what the Creative Crew Design Team members posted though, you will need to register and/or sign in. Sorry about that!  I hope you enjoy my project!

Update:  I have had several people request a template for the bottle.  I am uploading a document HERE, that has the outlines of four bottles on it.  They are just handrawn ones that I came up with - nothing fancy.  If you print it on card stock and then cut it out INSIDE the lines, you should be good.  Hope that helps!


  1. I love this card -very creative and love the techniques you used -it seems like the stamp set was just made to be placed in a bottle. You rocked this card :-)

  2. Your creative talents are absolutely amazing! Congratulations on this fabulous card!

  3. I LOVE this card and am sitting here trying to make my own version but wondering how you made the ship to look so much smaller inside the bottle!!!! HELP :-)

  4. Marie, thanks so much for sahring this wonderful card and the bottle template. I used this for a birthday card class that I recently did and the gals loved it.
