Dare U 2 Digi Stamp - challenge 18 - distressing


Our challenge at Dare U 2 Digi Stamp this week is distressing. We'd love to see your torn edges, sanding or sponging whatever technique you'd like to try to create that distressed look on those pristine Digi Images.


I have used one of these cute Lily-Boo's Boutique images this week and coloured her with copics. I have taken the opportunity this week to use up odds and ends from my scrap box and these odd sized bit of DP were just perfect for tearing up. The flowers are by prima and the flower charm came from my friend Tracy.

I do hope you all get a chance to get distressing for this challenge. If you pop on over to the blog Here you can see all the cards from the DT this week which will hopefully give you some inspiration. We also have a couple of announcements these this week, firstly that our challenge will be moving to fortnightly so as to give people a bit longer to enter due to summer holidays, kids off school etc, and secondly to announce our first Guest DT member of the month.

I am heading off on holiday for a week tomorrow, but wll catch up with all your creations when I get back.

Have fun distressing.
