Let's Ink It Up

Hi Folks
What a wonderful week of weather we have had here in the UK.  Bright sunshine and lovely blue skies.  Typically that has all changed now the weekend is here. Very dull and overcast here and I dare say we may have some rain by the end of the day.
Today sees the start of a new monthly challenge over at Let's Ink It Up.  We had some wonderful entries for our last challenge.  Thank you all very much and hope that you will get involved in the fun this month.
Our sponsor for this challenge is My Creative Classroom who are offering our winner a free seat to any My Creative Classroom classes.  If you want to know more just click on the link or pop over to LIIU.

So what is the challenge I hear you asking.  Well, our theme for this month is:
Distressing
Just create a project using a stamped image (no digi images allowed) and lots of distressing.
Here is the card I created:


As you can see I went a bit wild with the distressing.  The stamp is from Hero Arts and is so versatile as the sentiment part is left blank for you to put your own sentiment into.  It can therefore be used for all sorts of occasions.  The papers are from First Edition and I just love them.  I cut some little butterflies with one of my Marianne dies and added a torn distressed flower that I made.

My fellow team members have created some stunning projects so why not pop over to LIIU and take a look.
The challenge runs until the 29th April so you have plenty of time to submit your entry.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Papertake - use sketch
Divas By Design - Stamp something
Simon Says - Anything goes
Truly Scrumptious - Use lace

Thanks for popping by.
Take care
