Cuttlebug Challenge #16




Time is flying by and I can hardly believe we are at challenge 16 and what a great challenge it is

DISTRESSING

You can rip, tear, ink as much as you like, the more distressed the better and they don't come much more distressed than mine

I used paper by Jenn Wilson and distressed the edges then I used the floral screen and birds & swirls folders and had fun ripping and tearing then inked over it with blue and brown ink


the bird was distressed with crackle paint and ink and I added card candy and an embossed birthday sentiment, the ribbon- I have no idea where it came from but I just love the rafia and flowers that are on it


Looking forward to visiting your blogs and seeing all your distressed projects and remember there are lots of fun and ga,mes this weekend at the CB site- luv bug Weekend!- might even be a little tutorial from moi in there somewhere too!


Have fun
