Hello everyone, on Cupcake Challenge 102 we have a theme of distressing and this week we are sponsored by our regular sponsor Simon Says Stamp who are giving us a prize of a $20 gift voucher + free shipping. I am also entering my card into this week's Papertake Challenge where they have a fab sketch to follow.
Well, distressing is a nightmare for me and although I can't bring myself to rip and rough up my papers, I can manage a bit of inking! Since I got my copics at christmas my distress inks have been thoroughtly neglected but I have dusted them off and used them to colour Tilda with Birdcage from the Magnolia Pet Collection 2009. My DP is from Basic grey and I have distressed each element with antique linen and edged with vintage photo. I really love how this card turned out.... I'll have to get my inks out a bit more!
