Distress at SSC

Yes, the September challenges are underway over at Simply Scrapping Crafts.   New month so a new sponsor...

The first challenge is a favourite technique of mine....Distressing - this is open to a ton of different possibilities! Distressing with inks, scissors, etc! 

Of course, I had to get out my Distress inks and have some inky fun to make a background.
Distressed Flower
I used a number of different distress colours and my foam applicator to colour the background.  I then spritzed it heavily with gold Perfect Pearls mist.  I used Vintage Photo to distress round the edge.  I stamped my focal image ~ a flower by Magneta.  I coloured it and then applied some Milled Lavender over the image.  I matted it and then distressed the edges with scissors and some Vintage Photo Distress ink. The sentiment is an E.A.D. sticker from this set.

Hope you will take the time to join us.... pop over to SSC and see what my teamies have come up with... and have a go at Distressing.
