Penny Black Distressing


Kath's been waiting patiently for this distresssing challenge for weeks she loves distressing but for me it is distressing. So I decided to use this fab Penny Black and the gorgeous Prima papers Madeline and out came my Tim Holtz distressing tool and I distress every mat, I even torn the papers. Then I inked everything and I got out my blending tool and distress round the image.
But theres more I punched the flowers using my retro punch and scrunched them up and inked them too.
Hope I haven't distress you too much.
Do pop over and check out the Penny Black Saturday Challenge team we welcome two new permanent members Helen and Ali. If you wish to join us this week there's also a chance to win a Penny Black Gentle Kiss and some amazing seam binding from The Ribbon Girl.
