Simon Says - Let's Get Distressing

Blimey it's been a while since I've posted two cards in one day, if you didn't catch the first it's in the post below this one.

Simon Says they want to see distressing projects this week. I'm not a distressing fan except for a bit of inking on the edges, it's not that I don't like seeing everyone else's distressed projects as they are all gorgeous, I just think mine always look a bloomin mess. But hey-ho whats a challenge if it can't be challenging once in awhile, plus I don't want Lorraine chasing me up for not So here it goes, here's my mess.......

The image is from Papirloftet, I inked the edges, that was the easy part. Then I got tearing, fraying and curling with scraps of Funky Fairy papers from all different sets, I've chalked some of the edges. Lace was a bit of scrap in my stash. Flower is also from Pairloftet and added a pin with beads to it. Stamped a couple of flowery images then added two card candies to the top corners. And there it is!! To be honest this is the best mess I've ever done and I actually quite like it for a change. I need much more practice I think, but now I've done one that I'm not ashamed to show, it may just spur me on to keep at the distressing practice. I think it's because I'm a virgo, I don't like mess and things have to be just right, well perfect really, hate wobbly edges

Have you entered my candy yet?? Well there's only a few hours left to enter, my blog will be one year old tomorrow!! You'll find the candy post at the top of my blog.

Enjoy your evening!!

Hi Joanne
I'm toying with the idea of having a bash at this too but like you it's not my thing.
I must say though you've did a beautiful job for someone who doesn't do distressing. It's a cracking card.
