Dream Valley DT Challenge #110 Distressing

Good morning!

We have another Challenge up at Dream Valley - where has the last fortnight gone??! This time our theme is Distressing which can be either roughing-up the edges of your papers, or using ink.

Our sponsor is Robyn's Fetish

The DT were allowed to use some of their fab images, I went for Violet Red Hat Gal.

I distressed round all the papers using Worn Lipstick Distress Ink, which is such a pretty pinky-red. It doesn't show up too well in the photo, unfortunately, but irl it adds a haze of colour on the edges.

I used Promarkers to colour her, and added stickles to those fabulous feathers! The papers are a magazine freebie from 2012, 'Love Lives here' by Raspberry Road. The swirl die-cut is made with a Magnolia die, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the ribbon is from stash. The butterflies were made with a Martha Stewart punch, and glittered, the wooden heart has been coloured with Festive Berries ink and covered with Glossy Accents. The sentiment is LotV.

I've recently been going a bit more CAS, but Violet in her gorgeous dress and amazing hat demanded flowers, butterflies and swirls!

Go and see what my teamies have made, then get out the inks and distressing tools and join in!

Thanks for looking, and have a good week!
