Digital Tuesday Challenge 'Distress It!'

Hello and welcome to another Digital Tuesday Challenge.  This week's challenge is 'Distress It!', simply make a card or project that looks a bit distressed and be sure to include at least one digital element.  Our sponsor this week is Sans Designs.

To make my card, I used the Sans Design image ' a Flower 4 U'.  This is actually a full body image, but I wanted to focus on just the upper part of her body, so I used a circular Nestabilitie and cut just the top half of the image.  Because I'm a Clean and Simple designer, distressing is usually difficult for me, so I used 'faded and distressed' looking designer papers from Prima 'Jack and Jill'.  The only other distressing I did was to take a scissors and roughen up all the edges of the paper.  I used seam binding and hemp for my ribbon embellishment to repeat the soft, worn look.  Dew drops were put in the corner and Stickles on the flowers.

If you'd like to play along with us this week, simply click on the Digital Tuesday Challenge Blinkie in my sidebar and it will take you directly to the Challenge Site with further instructions.  

Have a great day! Amy
