Utterly distressed!!!

No, not me - the card! This week's challenge theme at Sweet Stampin' is 'distressing'- so distress inks, distressed edges and torn papers are just a few of the things we would like to see on your creations. As always,you can interpret this theme as you wish! 
I thought I'd try for a shabby chic look, not something I'm comfortable with but it is meant to be challenging :)) 
The beautiful image is ADFD, heard a rumour that they might be reopening, so hope it's true. Colouring medium is Copics with a little DI splodged around the image! Distressed all the edges of the papers and  kraft card with a Tim Holtz distress tool thingy. Added die cuts and flowers, a little LOTV stamped tag and a few pearls.
I can honestly say that the Sweeties have produced some wonderful cards this week so why not HOP OVER and take a look. We'd love to see what you make of this challenge so hope to see you there! 
Thanks for stopping by

Well, I would be totally distressed if I had to mae a card for this theme, nearly as bad as add a bow.
Some super dies, gorgeous image and fabulous design, a really lovely card and it hasn't distressed me at all.

What a gorgeous card and
I do so hope that rumour is true!! I really miss their digi’s.
Hope your staying safe and well. Our next door neighbour decided to power jet wash his driveway Saturday that took most of the day and today he has been doing the back patio and pathways. I feel like pulling the plug on him. Hugs Mrs A.

There's a wonderful fairytale feel to this card - I love the plant stems growing around her... I hope they're not going to cover the whole castle though! Amazing shading and colouring on the image.

Chris, this is STUNNING! I love EVERYTHING about your delish creation and the image is divine for sure! I miss ADFD, was just 'chatting' with Tammy on the ADFD FB page and it seems she will be making a comeback soon, so I'll let you know if I hear anything and please do the same for me! :D Love your gorgeous colours on this card hun, the kraft is a fab backdrop and the soft colours you chose for the image are so so lovely. Absolute stunner hun. Hugs, Wends xoxo
