The challenge at Macabre Monday this week is Kuriously Korroded with Kenny K- so they want to see all sorts of distressing in any way

Fab challenge as I can do distressing- tick and I can do Kenny K too- tick -so off we go... and this is the result

Damsel in Distress

The cobweb is a Delicious Doodles image and so is Mr Spider, so I got out my distress inks and inked the web then distressed the edges and mounted in to black distressed card

Printed the sentiment and distressed this too and there you go, Miss Glamour Puss is well and truly distressed- take it she's not yet noticed the spider or that big smile would be wiped right off her face!!!

Have a lovely day folks

Used my new Tim Holz die for the flower and found this ribbon in my stash

Have fiddled about most of this afternoon not achieving very much so time to get the finger out and get a move on me thinks
