ABC Challenge.

D is for ....... Distressing
So here is my distressed card. While looking for something this morning I found this lush handmade paper in the bottom of a box. Isn't it yummy.
I can't remember where I got it from. I have distressed it by tearing it once I had wet it and left it for a couple of minutes to soak. Then I used my Adirondack Mushroom ink pad to age it a bit. The Tilda stamp has some of the Adirondack on it to as does the A5 card I used.
  • A5 Card
  • Handmade Paper
  • Adirondack Ink in Mushroom
  • Ribbon and Peel Off from stash.
  • Magnolia Stamp
  • Watercolour Pencils

Well off to go out to the school now to see about Jake moving up to secondary school. As usual I have worried all morning about leaving the house. Gosh what a waste of energy.

I have also made another 1 of my ATC's for my swap so hope to have them all finished tomorrow and I'll let you have a look.
