Distressing



This is one of Ruth's new images so I thought I would try a little distressing again. I'm not very good at this technique but I hope practice will make perfect eventually.
I used Ruth's image, chalks, Woodware punches, Cuttlebug Dots, Glossy Accents and sorry I can't remember the papers.
I am entering this card into the following challenges -
Digital Tuesday - colour with chalks
Cupcake challenge - summer delights
Caardvarks - Embossing
