Tickled Pink Stamps Challenges - Distressing

Wow, this is my 3rd week as guest designer on Tickled Pink Stamp Challenges!! The month of May is just zooming by in a blur. It's hard to believe the kids have only about 5 weeks left before they are out of school for the summer!! Eeeeek!!! 

Anyhoooo, now I've totally distressed myself with that thought it leads me to this week's challenge which is "Distressing" and in words of Kellie herself --  "this can be distressing with inks or distressing the edges of your papers with a distressing tool, as long as it looks like your creation has been 'distressed' in some way thats fine!!!

The prize up for grabs is 1 RUBBER or 2 DIGITAL Stamps of your choice!

May 20th

On my card I've used Lil Victorian Steampunk Lad Lestat.. how charming is he?!! I just love this whole collection, my favourites {so far!!}

I've pretty much covered every aspect of distressing - my papers have been ripped, scraped, inked and painted.. and for good measure I stitched them too ;)
