H2H Distressing Challenge

Monday, brings a new challenge at Heart 2 Heart Challenges.  This week is to create a project using
distressing.  You can use any type of
distressing, just be sure and mention which type you used.

I used a couple of favorites in my card design, both of which will no longer be available to purchase after May 31.  The sunflower, leaves and saying came from the May Stamp of the Month-Friendship Bouquet.

yellow dotted paper is from the Dotty For You Paper Packet-

My card is based on the sketch this week at Unscripted Sketches

I used many forms of distressing on my card.  I used the edge distressing tool on the dotty paper and my colonial white square.  I distressed the edges of the paper with coca ink as well.  For the colonial white square I spritzed with water, crumpled and then distressed with more cocoa ink.  I even distressed my baker’s twine by adding Bamboo ink to take away the whiteness.
