Hambo Hoedown Ogre Card

The challenge this week at Hambo Hoedown is to use distressing and this really cute Ogre digital stamp. I am doing an extra post today because he is just too cute to not share him right away. I distressed the card with black ink and my distresser tool after embossing it with a Tim Holtz embossing folder. The words (that came with the Ogre digital stamp from Hambo) were also distressed with black ink after cutting apart. I dressed my ogre by paperpieceing his shirt and pants and raised him with mounting taper when attaching.  Isn't he cute?

Stamping smiles, Karen
