DYSU Challenge #60

Well you certainly enjoyed last weeks challenge over at Do You Stack Up? We had over 300 entries and let me tell you it was SO difficult to pick our top 3!!! Congrats to all the winners.  For this week's great challenge, we want to see some DISTRESSING on your cards.

Our generous sponsors this week are:

 Bugaboo Stamps - Winner's choice of 7 Digital Images

Crafty Emma's Store - £10 Guft Voucher

Digi Darla - Winner's choice of 5 Digital Images and  *every participant* a coupon code for a free digi - how cool is that!!

I have used this great image from Bugaboo called "Sean Slingshot" - I love their kids images and I felt this one lent itself really well to a distressed theme.  Sorry about the wonky picture - the sentiment really is on straight!!!  I have distressed my papers with the edge of a pair of scissors and then inked them - doubly distressed - lol.

Medium - Promarkers and Fired Brick Distress Ink
Papers - MME Kraft Funday Happy Days
Sentiment - freebie but I can't remember where from
Brads and corrugated card - stash

I hope my card has given you some inspiration but if you are looking for more, then hop on over to the DYSU? challenge blog and take a look at the rest of the team's gorgeous work.  You are sure to be inspired!!  I look forward to seeing all your lovely entries. Before I go, I want to say a big WELCOME to my new followers and I am so happy you like I create - mwah.
Thanks for looking
Denise xx
