Cupcake Crafts #58 – Distressing

Challenge 58 - Distressing

This week’s Cupcake Crafts Challenge is Distressing and yes, I found it distressing making this card!! I just don’t do the shabby look all that well (you may remember the Spoonful of Sugar challenge from a couple of weeks ago – I cheated with that one!!). I have sanded the edges of the card and used Core’dinations Whitewash card for the mount which has also been sanded a little. The paper is the stunning Blueberry Hill by Papermania (I love this paper) and the image is of course the gorgeous Daisy from Sugar Nellie (still my fave). She has been coloured with ProMarkers. If you want to see how distressing should be done then please visit the blog for ideas – the rest of the DT have done a grand job!

As this card features my favourite colour (PINK) AND my current favourite papers (Blueberry Hill by Papermania) I am entering it over at the Stamp Something challenge this week which is looking for your favourite colour/papers!

Righty’o, must dash as I am writing this on Sunday evening and have all the school stuff to get sorted for tomorrow. We’ve not long got back in from a day out in Birkenhead park at the Transport Festival (not as yawnsome as it sounds, honest) and ended up going for a Chinese meal – yum!

Ok, have a good Monday everyone.
