Dream Valley Challlenge 13 - Distressing

Happy Sunday everyone!  It's time for another challenge at Dream Valley and this fortnight we are lucky enough to be sponsored by Digi Doodles  AND One Stop Card Crafts!

Our theme is "Distressing"  Now, I have to admit that this is a HUGE challenge for me, favouring clean and simple as I do......what do you mean I have to rough up my lovely papers and add ink!  Some people are so amazing at this style, like my teamie Sara, but here is my first attempt, using Digi Doodles Daisy Girl:

I promise that that the edges have been roughed up with a pair of scissors and inked..........And my 2nd attempt, using Digi Doodles Country Path - the distressing is a little more obvious here!
So, if I can do distressing, ANYONE can, so please come and join us at Dream Valley!


  1. Susie, these are lovely, and your distressing is great. I particularly love the Daisy girl, it's really beautiful and I love how you coloured the image. CoB

  2. I do like your colouring, so pretty! I really like the decoupage on the irises, really nice! Good job!!

    luv, Mags x

  3. This is soooo pretty, I love the softness of it xxx

  4. Oh these are gorgeous Susie ... love how your popped up flowers really compliment your images. (...and just for the record, your distressing is waaaaaay better than mine LOL!)

  8. I have to admit I have trouble distressing papers too. I spent ages with scissors on mine and it hardly looks touched, lol. Two great card here though. xx

    It took me ages to get the the look right but then I treated myself to the wee Tim Holtz distress tool and it works a treat on papers!
