We're getting distressed at Fab'n'Funky challenges this week - in a nice way!

Good morning all

I was starting to think nobody loved me anymore - after z couple of manic days I haven't had much blogging time  and just foundh post still on draft grrrrr! - so that's why no one visited today! - anyway here it is -  off to the gym now but I'll pop on later to see you all xx.......

We have a brand new challenge at Fab'n'Funky challenges this week - almost as if it was made for me with my vintage/ distress thing going on at the moment

The challenge is 

Distressing

I decided to go with a different effect this time - not something I've done a lot before - but I like to experiment.  I used my TH distress tool to distress all of the edges and curled the corners to give a distressed look.  I decided not to use my distress inks to keep it fresh looking and I think I quite liked this first attempt

I chose this cute little image called Bows 'lil Santas helper from Lacy Sunshine
 Available here  

She's a sort of messy little girl and the distressed look quite suits her!
