Fall Farm - OCL Distress Challenge!

I'm so excited to share that I will be designing for Our Craft Lounge through the end of December!  Today there is a new challenge....so be sure to check out all of the details on the Our Craft Lounge Blog!
I decided to revisit the barn image from the Art of Nature set for autumn.

I used some vintage sheet music for my designer paper...it was perfect.y aged, so no need to distress!
I had a corrugated cardboard scrap that I wrapped with linen thread to embellish my card.

I used two sizes of corner punches to embellish my corners.  The smaller black corner is embossed with an embossing folder to resemeble vintage tin tiles.  I used two mini screw brads on each corner...love the touch of metal!

Finally a touch of faux stitching and a gold skeleton leaf finish off my card.  The image is colored with Copic markers.  I used Copic Colorless Blender Solution and terrycloth to add texture to my ground and tree foliage.
