Distressing with 4 Crafty Chicks

Good Morning to ya all! Happy first week of August...oh man where is the time going?  We are onto another fun challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks.  Our very talented host this week is the one the only Leanne.  She has challenged us to something fun and really something very easy.


Here is my creation.  I was super excited about this challenge because I could break out my new Tim Holtz (sp??) distressing tool.  It was messy oh but so much fun.  Leanne is a Distressing queen in my books, she gets those tears and rough edges just perfect each time.  Lori and Melissa are also Distressing queens with their daubers, oh to shade like they do.  All in all my adventure with this new tool was worth the purchase and look on the card.  Wish my camera showed it better in this picture.  Oh and this is my first ever Tilda...saweeet.    I used two kinds of pattern papers, Early Espresso, Whisper White (ribbon and paper).  Three Stampin Up punches, one Stampin Up Stamp, Copics, pearls and gems.

Please come on out and join us at 4 Crafty Chicks for this wonderful challenge.  Show us what it inspires in you. Can't wait to see what everyone has created.

Have a wonderful week.
