A DISTRESSING DAY.

Well, not for me lol but challenge #85 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS this week is distressing. One of my fave techniques, I just love the tatty look. We're sponsored by the lovely Judy at DIGI DOODLE SHOP and there's $10 to spend for the winner. Judy has some fabulous images so if you haven't been before, you really should take a look. All the design team used one of her images this week, and I chose to use 'The Day Off'.


My papers are all from the Basic Grey 'Recess' pad. I scuffed up all my edges using a scissor blade and inked all the edges with my walnut stain distress ink pad and a little black soot too. The birds were done with a Marianne Die, one in paper to flip and one in black card and the little swirl at the top left was also a Marianne die, but I just used the top of it. The sentiment is my own design.
