Good morning everyone it's Thursday again and another challenge from Charisma.
This week the lovely Karen has set the challenge and she wants us to get DISTRESSED.
Well I certainly did.......lol.....As I've never done this to my paper before, so I got quite stressed rubbing sandpaper over my new Wild Asparagus papers. They have a little distressing on them already but I wanted it to show a bit more so I set about them with a sand block from Hubby's toolkit......eeek!!! and this is the result.
As I don't have any distressing tools, I ran a serrated edge knife round the edges too then inked them with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distressing Ink. The flower is one of the handmade ones I did a few weeks ago and you can find the tutorial here. I've really surprised myself with this card as I didn't think I liked the distressed look but now that I've done it I really quite like it....lol...So it just shows you that you should always try something new even if it's not really your style.
I used the Friday Sketches layout. Thanks Karen for this challenge I really enjoyed it.
So why not get yourself all DISTRESSED and take part in this weeks challenge as always we have a fab prize for the lucky winner. Looking forward to seeing all your wonderful creations.
