Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge - Distressing

This week's challenge over at the Wags 'n Whiskers blog is all about Distressing! So tear some paper, ink up those edges, or rough something up!!

One lucky participant will win one of the NEW RELEASE stamps of your choice!!

Yes, you heard that right...

We are having a new release NEXT Friday - December 11th!!!

The Sneak Peeks will begin on Wednesday, December 9th...more on Thursday, December 10th...followed by a Blog Hop and Release on Friday, December 11th!

Now a little about my card.. the image is my adorable Sweet Danni with Bella. Stamped in Stazon and then coloured with Distress inks. I also added a little stickles for added sparkles. The gorgeous paper which I tore up was Bo Bunny and the trees were cut and distressed from some other papers which I had from last year. All the edges were chalked with Versamagic Jumbo Java to give a more aged feel. I also roughed up the edges of my card too. The gorgeous flowers in the centres of my snowflakes are Prima mini roses and I have also added some stickles sparkle :-) To finish I added some 4mm flat backed pearls to the corners of my image.

Don't have any Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber Stamps to play along...? Click here if you would like to order.

As always be sure to check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the team!

Have a wonderful weekend!
