Morning all. Alphabet Challenge day today. The letter D brings us to the word 'Distress' You can use distress inks, distressed papers or you can do what I did and distressed the edges of my papers. I do like to have a defined edge to my papers when I make a card. I will either use matting and layering, a stitched die cut shape or even embroider a border with cotton. One that I don't do much is to distress the edge. Don't know why. I have a special tool and everything. I even like the effect. Anyway, here is my DT card.
I chose the papers and created the layout before I decided which stamp I was going to use. Strangely, it made colouring it much easier as I had my colours before me. The image is from Bugaboo but it must be an old one as I can't find it in the shop.
Please pop over and join in the fun.
Thanks for reading.
