DDH1 Challenge: Distressing ~ Week 2


Today is week two of our distress challenge.  Michelle is our hostess on the DDH blog.  Make sure you visit the main blog to see more card ideas.  This challenge runs until March 20th.  

I used DDH digi image Cherry Blossom Bird again this week and this card has some distressing also.

I sponged and inked the edges of the image and partially cut it out. Then matted it with Bazzill Mocha Divine cardstock and TAC Emma cardstock.

Papers: TAC Emma SWIC and cardstock and Bazzill Mocha Divine; Sentiment: TAC Great Greetings (rubber); Inks: Palette Cognac and Burnt Umber; Copic Markers: R32, R35, R37; G82, G94, G99; YR21, YR23, YR24; E21, E13, E15, E55, E57, E59, 0

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!
