Distressed Tilda

The Tilda & Co challenge this week is to distress! Now I just don't do distressed - it distresses me lol!!! Soooo ..... here's my effort. I think I need to go and lie down in a darkened room now, I'm traumatised lol.

Edited post: Okay, so I went and attacked the card!!! I got out the sandpaper and sanded as best I could, got out the inks again and attacked the card with that so if this ain't distressed then I'm a lost cause.

I wish I had left well alone, I need counselling now lol



Magnolia stamp coloured iwth distress inks, Studio G sentiment
DCWV Eastern Blooms papers
L-EM leaves punch and Sizzix Tag
Rest of stuff from stash


Thanks for looking,
