DDH1 Challenge: Distressing ~ Week 1

Ready for a Challenge?

Today is our very first challenge and Michelle is our hostess on the DDH blog.  The challenge is distressing.  

This distress challenge runs until Sunday, March 20 and you can play along!  Make a card using a DDH image and show us your favorite distressing technique.  You can link your card image on the main DDH blog and you will have the chance to win blog candy -- Vintage Garden Labels -- from DDH also! 

I used DDH digi image Cherry Blossom Bird today for my card in this challenge.

I sponged and inked the edges of all the papers.  I added v's in the papers to created more of a distressed look.  The matted paper then was slit, inked the edges and rolled over the paper.   

Supplies: TAC Winchester SWIC, cardstock and hardware; Copic Markers: BG72, BG75, BG78; YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97; V17; E31, E33, E35, E37, E09, 0;  Inks: Palette Cognac and Burnt Umber 

There will be a second post March 14th on the DDH blog with more distressed samples. I will be posting another card idea next Monday. 

Won't you join us?!?
