Most Distressing

That's the challenge this week at AiFactory: Distressing.  I decided to take a slightly different approach to the word and used my Distress Inks to distress my background papers.  Sponge your favorite colors onto the blank cardstock until you're happy with the results and then spritz with water.  You can heat set it or let it air dry - pretty simple and a pretty easy distressing technique.  (Just to be on the safe side :-), I also used my distressing tool and distressed the edges of my distressed background paper.)

I used a couple different images from this Cute Birds and Bugs Clip art set.  For the inside of the card, I flipped the image.  I added a bit of Smooch ink, some Spica glitter pens, and Smooch Spritz for a bit of added glimmer.

You have one week to upload your (most) distressing project.  Be sure to go see what the other design team members have distressed for you too.  Have fun with this cool challenge.  I can't wait to see what/how you distress.

Smooch: Siren    
Smooch Spritz: Vanilla Shimmer    
Spica: black, buttermilk, red    
Distress Inks: Mustard Seed, Barn Door, Tumbled Glass
