YNS Challenge 12: Distressing

Hello everyone!

Today I'd like to share with you my DT card for our brand new challenge over at Your Next Stamp Challenges! It's YNS Starlet Cabio's turn to set the challenge this fortnight, and she has chosen the theme of 'Distressing'.

For my challenge card, I decided to use my 'Cupcake Cutie Fhiona' stamp, and carried out 3 types of distressing: 1. Sanding the Core'dinations Colorcore pink cardstock, 2. Using my Edge Distresser to rough up the edges of the DP, and 3. Using a Versamagic Dew Drop ink pad to ink around the edges of both the DP and the image!

I followed the fab sketch over at Sketch & Stash Challenge, but turned it 90 degrees to the left (and omitted the sentiment - hope that's okay?). My new stash is my uninked-until-today stamp!

Karen is holding a huge sale over at Your Next Stamp right now!!  15% off all stamps!! So get yourself over there toot-sweet to nab a bargain!  Be quick, as the sale ends on Sunday evening (21st March).
Finally, I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

1. Sketch & Stash Challenge #31 - Sketch
2. TPE Challenge #58 - Spring
3. Simon Says Stamp - A Splash of Green (the main colour of my DP is green, so I hope this counts!)

Have a great day!
