DDSC #77 - Distressing


Hi All,
Back again with my DT card for Digi Doodle Shop Challenges which is back after a short break while we welcomed our new girlies onto the team. Our challenge this week is DISTRESSING.



This lovely image is called "Day Off" and can be found here in the shop. I have used three different distressing techniques on this card - distressed the edges of the paper with scissors, distressed the edges with ink and painted the striped paper with distress crackle paint.

Close up of the image

Inside of the card

Recipe:
Medium - Promarkers and Derwent Pencils
Distress Ink - Black Soot
Papers - Basic Grey and Kaisercraft
Magic Mesh, brads, Kraft card base - stash
Crackle Paint - Ranger Clear Rock Candy
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards

I hope you will join us for this challenge and welcome all of the new ladies - I know some of them are very nervous as it is their first time on a DT so a kind word from you would be lovely. Don't forget to pop into the shop as there is another great offer running during October -  details in my sidebar - and you get two entries if you use a Digi Doodle Shop image!

Finally, I would like to say a big HELLO and THANK YOU to my new followers - your comments are always very much appreciated.
Hugs to you all
Denise xx
